       "Take a good look at yourself! You are already saved.
       You are original Buddha. You are overflowing with happiness and glory.
       To talk of paradise or heaven is to be talking in your sleep.
       Take a good look at yourself!
       All truths are within you.
      To look for truth outside yourself is to search for water outside of  ocean." 

                                -Ven . Song-Chol

    Zen Weekend between 17 and 20, October, 2019, led by Dok Hae Sunim.

    A hétvégi zen táborokat azért hoztuk létre, hogy kevésbé formális körülmények között a szangha tagjai jobban megismerhessék a zent -- és egymást. A zen elvonulások szabályrendszere szükségszerűen szoros, a zen táboroké lazább. A részleteket lásd az alábbi táblázatban.

    Only full-time application is available.

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?
