To study the Buddha way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.

Sweetwater Zen Center, named after the Sweetwater River that runs nearby, contains 11 residential cottages, a meditation hall, office, eating facilities, a Zendo Yurt, and a large 1/2 acre backyard complete with flower gardens and vegetable plots.

After purchasing the property in 2000, we have completed a great deal of property improvements. We have completely replaced most of the roofs, refinished all of the beautiful hardwood foors, repaired most of the water damaged bathrooms and kitchens, as well as repainting all of the interiors.
