  • Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien is an Awakened teacher and the founder of Universal Door Meditation Center in Houston, TX in 2003.

  • Zen Master's wisdom-opening teachings and interactive guidance are very dynamic, spontaneous, and lively, easily engaging listeners, no matter their level of practice.

  • Her wisdom-opening teachings, whether short or long, are always fresh, simple, and practical, but penetrate directly to the heart, helping people to break through, believe, and realize that they have the capacity to Wake Up.

  • From early childhood, Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien already had deep questions and doubt about the constant changes in life and the suffering of birth and death.

  • And at the same time, she also knew that there is a world where there is no suffering, no birth and death, only Awakened happiness and complete liberation. However, she did not know how to return and live in that world.

  • Her persistent questions about Awake were the powerful motivation to help her constantly seek answers; she spent many years studying and applying countless practice methods and searching for Awakened teachers, experiencing many hardships, with no regard for her life.

  • Finally, at the age of 30, hitting rock bottom of her inner search for True Self, like an explosion, the system of illusions shattered, Awake appeared, and from that moment she Awakened and lives Awake.

  • At that moment, Zen Master saw that everyone has the capacity to Wake Up, but they don't know because they believe in themselves so much and are addicted to their ego. Lost in that, they keep spinning in the darkness of ignorance, cannot see the truth, the nature of it, and therefore cannot return to Awake Mind.


  • Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien made a “great vow” to step into this world to help all sentient beings to discover, return, and become one with Awake Mind within themselves, to break the cycle of birth and death.


  • With unconditional love, Zen Master has devoted her whole life, helping people regardless of age, culture, or religion, constantly opening their minds to allow realization, and further showing and guiding them to realize and become one with Awake Mind within, that is...return to the priceless “treasure” already within themselves.
