"The true ornament of the Buddha hall is the people who are practicing there."
    —Shunryu Suzuki Roshi

It is the intent of this newsletter to serve as the voice of the Village Zendo, both within the Sangha and to the wider community. It is written and illustrated entirely by Sangha members, giving expression to our practice, our perceptions, our talents. We hope that it is and will continue to be a True Expression of our temple in the city.
