  2. Shattering the Great Doubt

    Shattering the Great Doubt

    The Chan Practice of Huatou

    • by
    • Chan Master Sheng Yen
    Huatou is a skillful method for breaking through the prison of mental habits into the spacious mind of enlightenment. The huatou is a confounding question much like a Zen koan. Typical ones are "What is wu [nothingness]?" or "What was my original face before birth-and-death?" But a huatou is unlike a koan in that the aim is not to come up with an answer. The practice is simple: ask yourself… Read More

  5. Enso

    Enso

    Zen Circles of Enlightenment

    • by
    • Audrey Yoshiko Seo
    The ensō is one of the most prevalent images of Zen art, and it has become a kind of symbol of the clean and strong Japanese aesthetic. It has been subject to a rich variety of interpretations—seen as everything from a rice cake to a symbol of infinity. But regardless of how it is understood, the ensō is above all an expression of the mind of the artist who brushes… Read More

    Each Moment Is the Universe

    Zen and the Way of Being Time

    • by
    • Dainin Katagiri
    It’s easy to regard time as a commodity—we even speak of “saving” or “spending” it. We often regard it as an enemy, when we feel it slipping away before we’re ready for time to be up. The Zen view of time is radically different than that: time is not something separate from our life; rather, our life is time. Understand this, says Dainin Katagiri Roshi, and you can… Read More
