AZC's Mission Statement

Cultivating Buddha’s wisdom and compassion deep in the heart of Texas

The Austin Zen Center community offers a haven of peace and harmony in which to engage in the task of self-discovery through Zen practice. Welcoming diversity, the practice of zazen is available to people of every race, religion, nationality, class, gender, sexual orientation, age, and physical ability. May all beings realize their true nature.

We offer the teachings and practices of the Soto Zen lineage of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi and are an affiliate of the San Francisco Zen Center.

New Beginnings

Elizabeth Law

Our online magazine, JustThis, is now an active, alive blog rather than a magazine which comes out in issues. We post pieces as they come in to encourage conversation and interaction between the readers and the writers.

We use the Tuesday night Zen Writing group as the source of many of the postings. As well, we welcome other submissions for consideration.
