Soto Zen Meditation in Sacramento

Valley Streams Zen Sangha is dedicated to the study of Buddha’s teaching and the practice of meditation. We invite newcomers and experienced Zen students to join us. If you are new to Buddhism and Zen, we invite you to visit our “What is Buddhism?”, “What is Zen?” and “How to Participate” pages. You are also invited to attend a 40-minute Introduction to Zen Meditation which meets in person on the second Monday of each month.

“The sounds of the valley streams are Buddha’s long broad tongue;
The forms of the mountains are his pure body.
In the night I heard the 84,000 sutra verses chanted.
How can I now relate to others what they mean?”
