Deer Park Monastery was established by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh to share the practice of mindful living.

Translation / Dịch : Vietnamese Spanish

This 400-acre sanctuary rests peacefully in the chaparral mountains of southern California, surrounded and protected by oaks and the natural landscape.
