Sanshin Zen Community is a Buddhist temple practicing in the tradition of Soto Zen. Everyone is welcome to participate in meditation, study and work.

Sanshin is an international Buddhist community founded in 1996 by Shohaku Okumura, a Soto Zen priest and respected translator of the works of thirteenth-century Japanese Zen master, Eihei Dogen Zenji. We’re based at Shobozan Sanshinji 正法山 三心寺 in Bloomington, IN, where we offer opportunities for daily practice, weekly dharma talks, sesshin and retreats, and a three-month ango (practice period). Activities are open to anyone with a sincere interest in the practice of Soto Zen. We’re largely a lay sangha, with most regular activities happening on weekday and Sunday mornings as well as occasional evenings in order to accommodate lives of work and family.
