“To study the Buddha Way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be actualized by myriad things.
To be actualized by myriad things is to realize 'no-barrier' between self and other."  


Eihei Dogen, 13th Century



BDG is a small, lay-led practice community in the Soto Zen (Japanese) tradition of Buddhism.
