Dharma study is one of Sanshin Zen Community's most essential activities. Our way of practice is based on the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha, Dogen Zenji, Kodo Sawaki-roshi and Kosho Uchiyama-roshi. Publications by the teachers in our lineage, including the newest ones from Shohaku Okumura, are available below.
