Who We Are

No Barriers Zen Temple - 無関寺 - Mukanji, is a Soto Zen temple, in the white Plum Lineage in Washington, D.C. We are focused on providing access to the Buddhadharma for all people. Our aim is to create and maintain an inclusive environment that supports the practice of individuals regardless of their difference or disabilities.

Inclusivity Statement

No Barriers Zen Temple intentionally welcomes all. We embrace difference and Oneness, which is found at the core of our Buddhist teachings. We acknowledge the systems of power, oppression, and privilege that have created barriers for people and communities with particular identities, abilities, and histories. We work together as a community, vowing to dismantle these barriers within our institutions and ourselves. These guiding principles apply to all functions and structures of our community. We strive to see the interconnectedness of all beings so that we may realize our True Nature.
