What to Expect

1. Visiting/Reception

Please come by the appointed time and register at the reception.

2. Lecture

Zazen (meditation) is a fundamental method of training in Zen Buddhism. You will meditate sitting

with correct posture and integrate your mind. If worldly thoughts should occur, ignore and let them occur and let them cease to exist. Just sit with a belief that you face yourself.

3. Move to the bamboo forest

Move to the bamboo forest near the temple. On a rainy day, Zazen is held in the temple.

4. Zazen experience

Remember what you learned in the lecture, concentrate and

engage in Zazen. Try to face yourself in the calm bamboo forest suitable for

mental concentration.
