Sample ordained lifestyle and experience the mental training and culture experience of Chinese ancient Buddhist Tradition.
Welcome to Supreme Zen's home on the Internet! Our International Zen Center has been growing over the last few years and we are sorely in need of a place where we can share news, upcoming retreat information, Dharma talks, life stories, etc. between all the people of the world.
Supreme Zen is an international Zen organization where anyone from around the world who is interested in enlightenment can easily learn about and practice Zen in New Zealand, SZen is maintaining a deep-rooted legacy of Zen practice and a strong Buddhist tradition from ancient China.
At Supreme Zen, we support a community of foreign monks, nuns, and laypeople who want to practice Zen following the teachings of SZen Masters. Many students come to practice or train here and later return to help the Zen Centers in their own countries.
Many of our teachers are interested in contributing to this web site and I hope that we can offer a valuable experience for new visitors on the Internet. Also, I would like to welcome those who have practiced with us in the past, and would be willing to help again through writing, through showing their photographs or artistic contributions on this site to all the SZen family. We look forward to hearing from you also with suggestions for the growth of our International Zen Center.
We look forward to your use of this Web-home and to your Great Love and Great Compassion for all people.
May all beings be happy, and free from suffering,
Abbot, Supreme Zen Center
