Welcome to Buddha Eye Temple - Butsugenji. We are a Soto Zen Buddhist temple located in Eugene, Oregon. We offer a regular schedule of zazen, classes, lectures, services, and retreats. All activities are open to the public and supported by freely-given donations. People of all faiths are always welcome.

Newcomers may attend our Sunday morning orientation, which begins promptly at 8:50 AM and includes meditation instruction. Please arrive no more than 5 minutes early. 

Dharma talks are updated weekly, and are both streamable and downloadable here.
