Ekoji Pure Land Group

Speak one sentence less of chatter;
Recite once more the Buddha’s name.
Recite until your false thoughts die;
Your Dharma Body will come to life.
-Seeker's Glossary of Buddhism



Richmond Zen Group

Richmond Zen has a new site! Please go to:



Zen practice is to get to our True Mind,
the mind not accessible to thinking.
This mind cannot be consciously known
by ordinary efforts.
An unusual effort is necessary.
This effort is zazen.

- Shunryu Suzuki

Ekoji Vipassana Group


Mind is the forerunner of all actions.
All deeds are led by mind, created by mind.
If one speaks or acts with a serene mind, happiness follows,
As surely as one’s shadow.

-Dhammapada 1:2



Richmond Meditative Inquiry Group

Awareness cannot be taught, and when
it is present it has no context.
All contexts are created by thought and
are therefore corruptible by thought.
Awareness simply throws light on what is,
without any separation whatsoever.
-Toni Packer
