Welcome to our new WZEN.org. We are now the on-demand Zen radio station of the Mountains and Rivers Order.


TO OUR LISTENERS IN SEARCH OF PODCASTS–ALL TALKS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AT https://zmm.mro.org/teachings/category/audio/


Since 2002, our mission has been to inform, support, and inspire Zen Buddhist practitioners, as well as all those seeking to live awake, compassionate lives. We offer talks by teachers of Zen Mountain Monastery, the Zen Center of New York City, and the Mountains and Rivers Order, interviews, and dharma retreats.

Our new format maintains the radio experience, while allowing listeners to access programs on-demand. Just choose from one of our five rotating playlists (Playlists 1 through 4 contain music and dharma talks, while Playlist 5 offers a retreat held at either Zen Mountain Monastery or the Zen Center of New york City). Playlists will be updated about once every two weeks.

To get started, click on the Playlist tab above.

Click on the ‘play’ button of any of the playlists to listen to an uninterrupted selection of programs. To choose a specific track, click on the ‘show playlist’ link and all the tracks will appear.
