The Rinzai Zen Community is the international circle of students practicing under the guidance of Buddhist teacher and author Meido Moore Roshi. Korinji, a monastery located on 17 forested acres in Wisconsin, USA, serves as our spiritual and training center. All are welcome to learn with us regardless of faith or background.
The essential point of Zen is to be awakened through a direct seeing of one's true, boundless nature. Through devoted practice of meditation and other things, we swiftly gain unshakeable confidence that our own natural mind is precisely what is called “Buddha.” Training for one's whole life, revealing this intrinsic wisdom in the play of daily activities, freedom and liberation naturally unfold.
Rinzai Zen is an extremely direct path of spiritual inquiry, quickly dissolving delusion. Its power to transform can seem almost shockingly strong. But those who practice it may attain profound wisdom within this very life. The authentic expression of such wisdom is compassion.
