U.S. Zen Institute
The US Zen Institute (USZI) was founded upon the generous support from the greater DC Asian immigrant community, especially the Buddhists among them. Thanks to their backing for over two decades, we were able to build up a strong footing in Maryland. Our current objective, on the one hand, is to expand and enrich the existing programs in order to foster systematic understanding of Buddhism at the global level and, on the other hand, to engage in interfaith activities at the local level that intend to genuinely better the life quality of people in general and Buddhists in particular. We mean to keep in motion the glocalization of Buddhism.
