Welcome to our official Twitch channel, TaizenOrg (https://twitch.tv/taizenorg).

Having first broadcasted on the fifteenth (15th) of March in 2019, this is a Buddhist based gaming and content creation video streaming channel with the aim to hold live meditation sessions, discuss Dharma based topics, and, of course, entertain through video games and comical gameplay! Video games from the past, from the Atari 2600 to the Neo-Geo, back in Nintendo’s and Sega’s vintage hay days, as well as various games for the Nintendo Switch are featured (including Switch Online), and along with casual and completionist gameplay that’s regularly presented.

Like many other Twitch channels, we are trying to foster a community of compassion and fun. Things that help us do this, aside from the content of our programming, are the chat within the channel while we’re live and our Discord server specifically for the channel. For more information, please read on.
