"Mountain Record would feed anyone's interest or love of Zen. A gem overflowing
with gems

—Jon Kabat-Zinn
















With thirty consecutive years of publication, the award-winning Mountain Record:The Zen Practitioner's Journal, is the oldest American Zen quarterly and the voice of the Mountains and Rivers Order. We feature writers, poets, scholars, and Buddhist teachers of the highest caliber: Karen Armstrong, Wendell Berry, H.H. the Dalai Lama, and Mary Oliver, as well as the teachings of the Mountains and Rivers Order and inspiring personal accounts by spiritual practitioners of all faiths.

Each one of our issues contains the best of both classical and contemporary writings on various themes relevant to spiritual practice—the environment, ethics and morality, education, science and religion—as well as a feast of traditional and modern Zen arts.

Join us in this mysterious, challenging, awe-inspiring journey of spiritual inquiry and practice
