    Meditation at the Temple

The Grand Rapids Buddhist Temple and Zen Center is a Buddhist Temple in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. We offer a rich tradition of Chinese and Korean Zen Buddhism adapted for westerners coupled with a commitment to inclusion, inter-faith dialogue and community service and engagement.

Even though we are a Buddhist Temple ands Zen Center, we invite everyone, regardless of religious tradition, to join us as we learn and live the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha for the benefit of all beings.
