Tai holds up a flower,
and the whole world smiles.
~ 上 惟下 覺大和尚法語
Having good thoughts is heaven.
When the mind is lucid and pure,
this is the Pure Land.

Welcome to Buddha Mind Monastery
Thousands of years ago, the Buddha attained
enlightenment under the Bodhi Tree. He realized that all sentient
beings possess inherent Buddha nature with the potential to achieve
ultimate freedom, eternal peace and perfect enlightenment. But
they do not realize it becasue of
their delusions and cravings.
Cha'n, widely known as Zen in the West,
is directly seeing one's true mind, which is the mind of the Buddha.
At Buddha Mind Monastery, one learns Buddha's teachings and meditation
methods to experience Cha'n (Zen).
