Center of Harmony Chan Buddhist Sangha

Address: 1040 Winton Road North  Rochester NY 14609
Tradition: Mahayana
Phone: 585-482-4872
Find on:
Spiritual Director: Shi Fa Neng  Email  (Phone: 585-482-4872)
Notes and Events:


Many people come to meditate for different reasons. Some are stressed out from work, others are looking for enlightenment (good luck!) and others want to cultivate their meditation practice with the support of other practitioners. The Characters to the left translate as "Harmony at the Center of the Heart Chan Buddhist Temple". Our Sangha (community of practitioners) was formally established in March 2008 to serve those students and community members who wish to pursue in-depth study and training in Chan Meditation and Buddhist studies. We are a lay order, not monastic. There are no monks, nuns, or ascetic people wandering around. We emphasize the cultivation of insight and clarity through meditation practice; something accessible to anyone regardless of their background or religious convictions. Our Sangha is not affiliated with any other organization or temple, in China or elsewhere; however, because Master Fa Neng (法能師範) is a precepted Buddhist (via Shi Chuan Xue) in the lineage of Great Chan Master Hui Neng (慧能) (638-713 CE) and in the tradition of Great Chan Master Yunmen (雲門) (862-949 CE), our Sangha exists as a bead on a string of a long line of Buddhist practitioners dating back to Shakyamuni Buddha over 2,500 years ago.

Services: There are several courses of study and practice that are extracurricular to both Martial Arts and Meditation. They complement and add depth to ones practice. The following services are offered apart from our normal programs, and are offered free of charge as a gift of dana:

  • Triple Refuge Ceremony: This ceremony is all that is required to become a Dharma student/ practitioner of Buddhism. It is not a conversion, as we practice Buddhism as a practice... not as a religion. Buddhist practice can cultivate discipline and peace of mind through mindfulness and meditation, things which certainly do not conflict with most religions. At this occasion, people formally take "refuge" as a student of the "Three Treasures"... The Buddha (guide), Dharma (instruction), and Sangha (group of practitioners). It is at this time when one receives the black Hai Qing Robe (long Daoist-type robe with draping sleeves). This event is held quarterly, in the months of January, April, July, and October, as well as during the biannual precepts ceremony. Those wishing to take refuge and receive the precepts simultaneously, may do so at the June and December precepts ceremonies.
  • Precepts Ceremony: This ceremony is when people take 5 vows; to abstain from taking life, to refrain from lying, to abstain from stealing, to refrain from taking intoxicants to produce heedlessness, and to abstain from misconduct done in lust. At this time, they receive a Dharma Name / fo hao (佛號), a certificate to mark the occasion, and the 5 precepts in print with explication and significance. This ceremony is conducted biannually on the summer and winter solstices. In 2008, these will be held on June 20th and December 21st.
  • Interviews: Chan interviews are conducted weekly, after the meditation session.
  • Extra Practice: Students who have already taken refuge are welcomed to attend extra practice. This is held on Sundays a short while after meditation practice concludes. Those who attend the meditation practice are not required to attend extra practice. It is here when students do chanting practice (using those chants which are philosophically relevant to practice), bowing practice (moving exercise for the body/mind), in-depth philosophical analysis of various topics, and sutra study (using those classical texts which are useful for modern practice).

Chicago Ratna Shri Sangha

Spiritual Director: Drupon Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche  
Notes and Events:

The Chicago Ratna Shri Sangha is a non-profit organization dedicated to the practice of Tibetan Buddhism as passed down in the Drikung Kagyu Lineage founded by Lord Jigten Sumgon in the 12th Century. Born in Tibet Lord Jigten Sumgon (Rinchen Phel or Ratna Shri in Sanskrit) was an emanation of Buddha Shakyamuni and was considered to be one of the greatest disciples of Phagmo Drupa, who named him as his successor.

Founded in 1994 by the Venerable Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche, Chicago Ratna Shri Sangha has sustained itself with regular practice in the homes of local practitioners and teachings given by the precious lamas of the Drikung Kagyu lineage, who have been invited several times yearly.

Under the guidance of our spiritual director, Drupon Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, we are striving to establish a strong center dedicated to serving the Chicago area as a place for teachings, practice, contemplation, and meditation. Under the guidance of Drupon Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, our goal is to sponsor regular retreats, teachings, and to maintain our regular weekly practice. In the future we hope to establish a broader spectrum of activities to benefit both the local community and other communities worldwide.

Notes and Events:

We are a diverse group of Chicagoans committed to practicing the Zen way of awakening together, and to providing a place for others to come to and deepen their own practice.  See our website at for additional information.

We meet twice per week: Sunday evenings at 7:00 p.m. in the Lincoln Park neighborhood and Wednesday afternoons at 2:15 p.m. in the Chicago Loop.

On Sunday evenings, we meet for zazen, chanting and a dharma talk.  We meet at the Cenacle Retreat Center, 513 W. Fullerton, in Chicago\\\'s Lincoln Park neighborhood.  Meditation begins promptly at 7:00 p.m.  Meditation instruction is available for newcomers every week at 6:40 p.m.

On Wednesday afternoons, we meet for zazen, kinhin, and a dharma talk.  We meet at 30 N. Michigan Ave., Room 1111 (across the street from Millennium Park).  Meditation begins promptly at 2:15 p.m., so please plan to arrive early.  If you are new to Buddhist meditation, please plan to attend a meditation instruction session before your first visit.  Our teacher, Myoshi Thomson, offers meditation instruction to newcomers every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in Suite 1008 of the same building.  If you are planning on attending meditation instruction, please email us at so we know to expect you.

We practice in the Sōtō Zen Buddhist tradition, which traces its heritage back to Buddha through a 2500-year history of fellow practitioners, including our ancient teachers Bodhidharma, Caoqi Huineng, Dongshan Liangjie, and Eihei Dōgen, and our modern teachers, Dainin Katagiri, Shoken Winecoff, and Myoshi Thomson, who guides our practice here in Chicago.

We welcome all to join us in our practice of the way of Zen. What is this practice? The founder of our lineage in Japan, Eihei Dōgen (1200-1253), put it simply: “To study the Way is to study the self; to study the self is to forget the self; to forget the self is to be awakened by all things.” Our practice, then, starts with ourselves, with seeing clearly who we are, and how we are, right now, in this moment.

Our basic activity together is quiet seated meditation. Indeed, the word “Zen” itself is derived from a Sanskrit word for meditation, and sitting in silent meditation has always been the central practice of awakening in Zen. But together we learn to practice the way of awakening in all our activities, and indeed to make our very lives themselves expressions of the awakened mind and heart.
