About Zen Center of Pittsburgh


Zen Center of Pittsburgh is a Soto Zen Buddhist Temple founded in 1999 by Rev. Kyoki Roberts, now led by head priest Kotoku Crivello.

Zen Center offers Sunday services, daily meditation, and events within the greater community.

Deep Spring Temple is located just thirty minutes north of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on fourteen isolated acres with stunning views of the Western Pennsylvania forests. We offer monthly retreats and for those who would like to investigate ordination, we offer residency training.
