Green Dragon Temple (Soryu-ji) is a Buddhist practice center in the Japanese Soto Zen tradition, offering training in Zen meditation, philosophy and work. The mission of Green Gulch is to awaken the bodhisattva spirit - the spirit of kindness and realistic helpfulness - as a living enactment of Buddha's Way.
