Chung Tai Holds the flower,
all sentient beings smile.
A Refreshing Spring in the Modern World
Opening the door to enlightenment
Meditation and Zen Buddhism help people calm their bodies and minds, relieve pressure and anxiety, and bring peace and insight into their lives. As an outreach effort from Chung Tai Chan Monastery in Taiwan, Buddha Jewel Monastery opened its doors in the picturesque city of Seattle in September 2008.
Broad Transmission of Chung Tai
By teaching Zen meditation and Buddhism, Buddha Jewel Monastery aims to serve the Great Seattle Area by helping people purify their minds and promote mutual understanding and social harmony.
We welcome everyone to attend our classes and events, to discover the joy of meditation, and to learn the wisdom of the Buddha.
