Over 30,000 people in 120 countries are connected to his website through a free email subscription. He is the author of eight books.

At the age of 20, Adya began studying Zen Buddhism under the guidance of Arvis Joen Justi, whose teacher was Taizan Maezumi Roshi. During that time, he also attended long retreats with Jakusho Kwong Roshi, which is a disciple of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi, at the Sonoma Mountain Zen Center. While working at his father’s machine shop, he then created a meditation hut in his parent’s backyard and began meditating two to four hours a day.

Today, Adyashanti offers teachings that are free of any tradition or ideology. He says, “The Truth I point to is not confined within any religious point of view, belief system, or doctrine.” His teachings are an open invitation to stop, inquire, and recognize what is true and liberating at the core of all existence.
