Mission Statement
Zen Columbus Sangha is an independent community of Zen practitioners in Central Ohio. As an open, participant-led sangha, we support each other's practice and welcome anyone interested in exploring the Zen Buddhist path.
We do this through:
•offering a space to sit regularly with others in a non-judgmental atmosphere of self-awareness,
holding orientation sessions for those interested in Zen,
making available books and recorded talks on the Dharma and information on retreats in the area ,
arranging for teachers to meet with the Sangha.  

Zen Columbus Sangha was originally founded as Columbus Zen Corner in the Diamond Sangha tradition of Robert Aitken Roshi. It is now a participant-led Zen sangha whose individual members practice according to a variety of traditions.
