Walk a path of wisdom and compassion.
The Rinzai Zen Community is the circle of students practicing under the guidance of Buddhist teacher and author Meido Moore Roshi, abbot of Korinji monastery. All are welcome to learn with us regardless of faith or background.
Zen helps us to dissolve negative habits of body and mind, live with clarity, and be of service to all beings.
The essential point of Zen is to be awakened through a direct seeing of one's true nature: kensho. Through devoted practice, one swiftly gains unshakeable confidence that one's own natural mind is precisely what we call “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, 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.
