Shobogenzo Zen Center  is practice group in Manila, Philippines. We are a Zen Center in The Five Mountain Zen Order, and are under the spiritual direction of our Guiding Teacher, Wonji Sunim. If you would like to practice with us, please contact Mujin Karuna , Abbot for information regarding the practice schedule and location0f the Center.

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.


 The Shobogenzo Zen Center will Be Closing Its doors In
Manila And Moving To It`s New Location In Cavite. The target date is before Christmas as today we just locked in the deal. It will be a two story complex townhouse built brand new (The Center Will Own Its Place Of Being Our-Right). The whole second floor will be devoted toward the center and the zendo being able to accommodate over 40 persons. With this new facility we will be restructuring with mid week classes and many different retreats being only min. from Tagaytay. We will also be interacting with the Manila Korean Temple for retreats and services as now the center has a means of transportation for the Sangha members as well and free of charge, not to mention it is only min. away from us. Below are some of the Manila Korean Temple pictures we will be organizing with for services and study for the advanced Zen students of our Sangha.
