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. Our wish is that all beings realize their true nature, which is grounded in our inherent wisdom and compassion.
