The Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago is a Soto Zen Temple dedicated to helping practitioners realize their true nature through Zazen, seated meditation.

The Zen Buddhist Temple of Chicago was founded in 1949 by Soyu Matsuoka Roshi. Originally located on Halsted Street on the north side of Chicago, the Temple moved to its current location in the 1980s. We also share space with the Chinese Cultural Academy, which offers classes in Tai Chi Chuan.
