Chan Grove is a Buddhist monastery devoted to teaching and cultivating Chan Buddhism. Following the footsteps and vows of Master Sheng Yen, our mission is to pass on the timeless wisdom of Chan masters in the past and to help all discover the benefit of Chan in today’s world.
We combine principles in Buddhist sutras and shastras, the unique characteristics of Chinese Chan (Sudden Approach), Elder Master Sheng Yen’s teachings and Master Guo Ru’s own understanding and experience — to guide us in developing our program and practice.
Chan Grove conducts retreats in practice methods including Silent Illumination, HuaTou and Buddha’s Name Recitation. We also hold regular classes on sutras, Koans, and the rich collection of teachings by Chan masters. Furthermore, to help everyone incorporate Chan in daily life and through artistic expression, we offer creative, inspiring workshops in a variety of subjects, such as Tea Chan, Chan in the art of photography, calligraphy, painting, flower arrangement et cetera.
Chan is fully alive in every present moment. Through these programs, we hope to help all experience Chan in everyday life, to awaken to our true nature and thus become our own masters.
