A collection of audio talks by our late abbot Kongo Langlois, Roshi is now available at Northwestern University Libraries


Since 1949, the Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago has helped people work to realize their inherent wisdom and compassion through Zen meditation and Dharma teachings.  We rely exclusively on your generosity to continue.  If your circumstances permit, please donate.  We have also recently enrolled in a program with Amazon wherein a portion of your purchase will be donated to us - Amazon Smile -
