Welcome to the OBC Journal. The Journal area of this site lets readers download current and past issues, make available archives of published articles, allow you to give us feedback, and offer help if you want to know how to send in an article, how to subscribe, or need other information.
The Journal is published four times a year from the Journal office at Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in the north of England. Articles from monks and lay practitioners on aspects of Zen practice, combined with news from temples around the Order are combined to make a digital publication of around 80+ pages
The Journal is now available as a free pdf download.
Also the eBook version for kindles and tablets with the kindle app, are available from amazon: search the amazon site of your country (i.e. at these sites: UK Kindle version of journal, US Kindle version of journal). 70% of this price goes to support the OBC Journal.
For more information you can sign up to our new email newsletter at this page: https://journal.obcon.org/e-newsletter-sign-up/ and on that page there is a link to previous issues of the newsletter if you want to catch up on past news.
We also now produce a printed Annual of all the articles for the previous year for those who appreciate reading a printed book, see our Annual page.
The Journal has always been a collaborative project, as we rely on people to send in articles, support us financially with their subscriptions and offer help in other ways, such as transcribing talks and proofreading.
Please look at the Offering help page to see how you can contribute.
