Zen students are welcome to join our daily practice schedule of zazen, chanting and work. The daily schedule is from 4:30am to 8pm, and all scheduled activities are mandatory for those coming as students.
If you are looking for some quiet time alone, O-an cottage is available. This lovely cottage can sleep two people comfortably and has its own kitchen and bathroom. There is abundant wildlife and spectacular mountain scenery to be enjoyed, but most of all there is a sense of serenity that provides a perfect place to learn and grow or just to retreat and rest. To see more photos of O-an, click here for PDF. The cost is $200/night. We will need at least two weeks advance notice for guests at O-an cottage. Please email DBZ office or call us at (845) 439-4566 for more information or to reserve your place.
Although Dai Bosatsu Zendo is open to visitors from March to November we cannot receive visitors without a scheduled appointment. Call us in advance to arrange your visit, or to reserve for any event, see calendar. As we are a practicing religious community and a private property, we cannot accommodate casual visitors who wish to enjoy our grounds.
