Centre description
Chung Tai Zen Center of Houston (CTZCOH) is an affiliate of Chung Tai Chan Monastery (CTCM) in Taiwan. Founded by Grand Master Weichueh, CTCM is the leading Chan (Chinese Zen) monastery in the world which propagates the true Teaching.

CTZCOH is located in the southwest of Houston, Texas and is one of the eight meditation centers of CTCM in the United States. This center was built from the donations of devout disciples and completed in September 2002. It is a haven for all practitioners to learn Chan, meditation, Buddha's teachings, and the altruistic practice of Bodhisattvas.

CTZCOH comprises four buildings that house two meditation halls, a reception lobby, a dining hall, a library, two conference rooms, a kitchen, dormitories, and so on. The center offers Chan meditation classes in English and Chinese and hosts ceremonies, meditation retreats and other activities on various occasions. All the activities of the center are offered to the general public free of charge. Thus, it needs donations to suport its operation.
