SOTO ZEN NORTH AMERICA VIDEOS

 

Soto Zen Shumucho (administrative offices) made videos to show our activities in North America. The first one will show you the current stream of Soto Zen in North America, how the Zen is synchronizing in the daily life of the people who live there.

In the second one, almost 100 year-history in North America can be seen including Zenshuji. Soto Zen Buddhism was originally begun for Japanese immigrants. But now, there are so many Zen centers for the practitioners in North America.
