The Eye Of The True Dharma
Five Mountain Zen Order
Bridging the gap between the timeless wisdom of the East and the fresh pragmatism of the West, we are a diverse group of people who come together to share the practice of meditation and study the principles of Buddhism. The purpose of the group is to offer instruction in these practices and teachings, and to provide a place where people can form a community that supports their practice in everyday life.
All of our programs are open to everyone, regardless of previous experience or background.
If you are living in the Manila area, whether visiting or passing through, we also welcome you for the few days you may only be here. Nothing is required, just a traditional Filipino Smile. We have all that you will need and one of our Sangha members is a practicing chef if you are in luck to catch him on a Sunday, besides there is always something great to eat here at the Center. We also can accommodate up to 6 people for formal meditation retreat services (traditional style) with prior notice of at lest one week. Or if you wish to call and reserve a traditional stay for a view days, as mentioned above just give us a call. Our Center is nothing like the big temples and monasteries that are around us here, we are here to practice. We are also open 24/7 for all needs, even if just to sit and talk. I am a full time monk, and I am here for everyone’s needs, my doors are always open. So let it be known, there is no worries if you are in need at 3 A.M or 3 P.M.
