    We have created the zen weekends so as to ensure an environment where practitioners can get to know Zen and each other in a less formal way. The rules around a Zen retreat are necessarily tighter, those of the Zen weekends are looser. See details below.

The Human Route

Coming empty-handed, going empty-handed — that is human.
When you are born, where do you come from?
When you die, where do you go?
Life is like a floating cloud which appears.
Death is like a floating cloud which disappears.
The floating cloud itself originally does not exist.
Life and death, coming and going, are also like that.
But there is one thing which always remains clear.
It is pure and clear, not depending on life and death.

Then what is the one pure and clear thing?
