  • The Rinzai Zen Way: A Guide to Practice (Shambhala Publications, 2018) was written by our teacher as a guide to the Zen path for beginners. It includes detailed instruction in basic meditation that you can start to practice at home. Purchase online here.

  • KORINJI TV is our constantly growing online library of Zen instructional and dharma talk videos featuring Meido Roshi. Two new videos are added each month. Access to Korinji TV is among the benefits given to new members of the Korinji Rinzai Zen Community. Access online here.



At Korinji monastery the residents conduct a daily chanting service. We are happy to add your name, or the name of anyone you know who is facing challenging circumstances, to our daily dedication.


We additionally conduct Buddhist ceremonies as a service to our larger community. Ceremonies marking life passages such as weddings and memorial services, healing ceremonies, rituals for difficult circumstances, blessings of a house or place of business, and rituals to address unexplained phenomena are all things it is possible to request.

Contact us to request a prayer dedication, or to discuss the possibility of a Buddhist ceremony.
