In the tradition of Shakyamuni Buddha, teachers at San Francisco Zen Center and teachers from affiliated sanghas frequently give talks on various occasions. Teachers who have been Shuso (Head Student) or have been given Dharma Transmission provide students with Buddha's teachings and how those teachings can become part of one's daily life.
Our talks are provided free of charge, but we do ask that you consider providing a donation.
