liberation

wisdom through personal investigation

uncovering ultimate reality

Buddhism in daily life: Cultivate virtue (through upholding precepts), concentration (through meditation practice), and insight (through dharma study) -- ultimately we are each responsible for our own future. Thus we can all uncover our innate Buddha-nature, our inherent capacity for compassion and wisdom.

Zen practice allows us a mind of stability and clarity -- dispelling delusions and awakening to liberation and joy. We transform our deep and subtle habits into wholesome ones, and cultivate until we can see things as they really are without our own biases and discrimination.
