    • by
    • John Daido Loori
    Zen rituals—such as chanting, bowing, lighting incense before the Buddha statue—are ways of recognizing the sacredness in all of life.

    Origins and Meaning

    • by

  4. The Zen Art Box

    The Zen Art Box

    • by
    • John Daido Loori,
    • Stephen Addiss
    A work of Zen art is a teaching in visual form, intended to be contemplated not only for its beauty, but for the secrets it contains about being fully human, fully alive. As teaching, Zen art can be profound, perplexing, serious, humorous—sometimes all within the same piece; as art, it stands somewhere outside standard aesthetic conventions, even those of other schools of Buddhist art. It is most often identified with… Read More

    Zen and the Environment

    The Kong-an Teaching of Zen Master Seung Sahn

    • by
    • Zen Master Seung Sahn
    Zen is famous for koans (called kong-ans in Korean, and in this book), those bizarre and seemingly unanswerable questions Zen masters pose to their students to check their realization (such as “What is the sound of one hand clapping?”). Fear of koans keeps some people from ever giving Zen practice a try. But here, through the experience of seeing a modern Zen master work with his students, you can see… Read More

    Moral and Ethical Teachings of Zen
