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.
