The Canberra Soto Zen Group, an unincorporated not-for-profit association, was established in August 2012. The Group’s aims are:
To practice in the Soto Zen tradition in accordance with the teachings of Zen Master Dogen Zenji, taught by Zen Master Ekai Korematsu Osho, Teacher and Abbott of Jikishoan Zen Buddhist Community (JZBC). To provide an environment for and support to those in the Canberra region community who have an interest in the Soto Zen tradition and more generally in Zen Buddhism. To maintain a link with Zen Master Ekai Korematsu Osho, and encourage members of CSZG and interested individuals to do so.
