Awake Tour - English.png

Welcome to the Awake Tour


at Universal Door Meditation Center

"The Journey to Awake" is the journey to discover your own inner world. We are currently living in the world of human mind, thus we have joy, sadness, anger, hatred, anxiety, fear... That's why we don't have true happiness in life. We have no idea that there is an Awake World...a world that is bright, vast, pure, clearly knowing, fresh, spontaneous, seeing everything as they are, immaculate, no ego, no suffering, no judging, no blaming, no comparing, no competing, no good / bad, no happy / sad, no up / down, no winning / losing, completely liberating the cycle of birth and death. The Awake Tour, "The Journey to Awake," will allow you a chance to know why people have afflictions and suffering and open the Awake path to help everyone Wake Up to liberate themselves from suffering.

The moment of merging into the Awake World, Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien saw that all beings have the capacity to Wake Up, but they don't know it, forever drifting in the suffering of birth and death. Right at that moment, the Boundless Compassion appeared, Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien made “the great vow” to step into this world to help all beings regardless of age, race, culture or religion, realize and become one with the Awake Mind within, completely liberating sufferings.

The Awake Tour "The Journey to Awake" is a part of the Awake treasure that Awakened Zen Master Thich Dieu Thien wants to give all people, like an introduction to help people know about the Awake World. The special layout of the garden will give people a clear understanding and a deeper connection throughout the tour. 17 unique locations of the tour have been identified on this map.
