Zazen (Zen meditation) experience at a 300 years old temple in Miyajima, Hiroshima
IntroductionWhy don't you experience the full-scale Zazen (Zen mediation) at a temple with 300 years of history?
It is known that Buddha sat under the bodhi tree which he vowed to never leave that spot until he learned the Truth. Since then his wisdom was spread all over the world by his followers as "The Teaching of Buddha". The Teaching of Buddha became "Zen Buddhism" in China. Japanese Zen Buddhism has developed in its own original way since then.
The essence of Zen Buddhism is Zazen. Zazen is putting aside your everyday thoughts and concentrating on the "here and now". While doing Zazen, it is important to harmonize your posture, breathing and mind. Described as "Cho-shin (harmonizing the body)" "Cho-soku(harmonizing the breath)" "Cho-shin (harmonizing the mind)".
