About Mountain Record

For nearly four decades, Mountain Record has been offering spiritual seekers of all faiths a unique journey through words and images. Mountain Record began as a newsletter printed on Zen Mountain Monastery’s copy machine and grew into an award-winning quarterly journal valued as much for its essays, teachings, and interviews, as for its stunning photography. It also continued to serve as a vehicle for sharing some of the activities of the Mountains and Rivers Order: ceremonies and celebrations at our Monastery and city center, comings and goings within our residential programs, reviews of books and films we’ve been reading, and much more.

Now, MountainRecord.org continues that tradition as the online home for our postings, inspirations and reflections. You can find a number of archived dharma teachings that appeared in the print edition, while keeping up to date on our sangha’s latest news. Meanwhile, we’ll also be putting out an annual printed journal that will expand on the offering by teachers in our lineage.  Stay tuned for more information on the first issue, due out at the end of 2019.

Thanks to everyone who has joined us in this journey over the years, as well as everyone just stepping onto the path.
