The ancient bodhisattvas found joy in doing small things, encouraged by the famous words in the Lotus Sutra, “to shine one corner of the world.” It is enough if you just shine one corner of the world. That is enough.
— Talk by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, Tassajara, 1969
Shunryu Suzuki had great confidence in each person’s ability to make a positive contribution to the world. Because of his unshakeable belief that even the smallest activity in support of the Dharma is valuable, many people came together to found and steward San Francisco Zen Center. Today, the unique Dharma legacy of Suzuki Roshi is still nurtured by the members and benefactors of Zen Center.
During the month of October, new memberships will be doubled by matching gifts. Become a member of San Francisco Zen Center today! You too can shine one corner of the world.
