Cambridge Buddhist Association
|Cambridge Buddhist Association|
|Status||Closed as of September 2011 (as place of practice)|
|Founder||D.T. Suzuki, Hisamatsu Shinichi, John & Elsie Mitchell|
The Cambridge Buddhist Association was informally founded in 1957 when D.T. Suzuki moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts and befriended John and Elsie Mitchell, who ran a vast library of books on Buddhism and held zazen for various practitioners. The institution was incorporated in 1959 and remains active. In 1979 Maurine Stuart, a Rinzai rōshi, became President of the organization, and several influential Buddhist teachers in the United States have been members.
The Cambridge Buddhist Association ceased to offer a place of practice in September 2011, when the property that housed the Zendo was sold.
