ZEN
Zen Wisdom is thought to be the most refined spiritual possession of Asia, with its origin in India, its development in China, and its practical application in Japan. Wherever there is poetic action, a religious aspiration, a heroic thought, there is Zen. Zen is direct- goes straight to the point- requires no mediator. It is the greatest gift the Orient can make to the Occident.

ZAZEN: Formal Zen meditation.
Meditation has been said to occupy in Buddhism the place of prayer in other religious. In a sense this is true- except that Zen meditation is not prayer, makes no assumptions at all about God, and has been practiced by adherents of many major religions.

Zen meditation is not a dreamy reverie. Nor does it seek to apply the mind to any formulated problems of philosophy, ethics, or theology. Rather, the object of meditation is to force the participant beyond the sphere where words can be used, into the realm of immediacy where Ultimate Truth can be realized.

To put it simply, Zen meditation is to be approached as an end in itself. Greater Wisdom is not its aim but is an incidental results. It is extremely practical and penetrates all phases of daily life.

Who can participate?
Anyone who desires to progress in mind, body, and spirit may benefit by attending the Zen center. Among attendants have been practitioners of Roman Catholicism, Protestantism, and secular ethical philosophies, as well as other Buddhists. The only requirements are a sincere purpose and a clean body.

Application to life.
The late Reverend Dr. Soyu Matsuoka-roshi said: "Many people have inquired about the life that a Zen person should lead. As you grow in Zen, you will find that you no longer have to think about how to act, or how to live, because the life of Zen will have matured in you, and your actions will be in complete harmony with your inner spirit."

Where to Begin?

1. Study.

2. Reflection.

3. Meditation.

4. Finding spiritual friends.

Awakened Life is a re-imagining of the Zen koan tradition that is rooted in its original values: life as a process of awakening; meditation, inquiry, imagination, and relationship as ways to discover and deepen that awakening; and creativity and caring for our world as the natural expression of awakening. We believe that buddha nature is everywhere, and so we value the art and the metaphors, the myths and the landscapes of this time and place. Awakened Life is a constantly evolving field of practice, shaped by the experiences of people right here and now. Enlightenment as a conspiracy of friends.
The Awakened Life programs and community are in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where founding teacher Joan Sutherland lives. Awakened Life forms the center of The Open Source, a network of practice communities and individuals in the western United States committed to co-creation, life in this world, and awakening together.

Notes and Events:

Zen Meditation instruction offered at Awakened Meditation Centre by Zen Master Hwasun Yangil is intended for both beginners and advanced students alike.

Participants are offered a rare opportunity to enrich their inner life and practice under the guidance of an experienced Zen Master.

Instruction is provided in sitting meditation posture, breathing techniques, walking meditation, and Ko-an meditation, to concentrate and awaken the mind.

According to Zen tradition, at a gathering of his disciples Shakyamuni Buddha probed the understanding of his followers about the ultimate goal of His teaching by holding a flower aloft before the assembly. Among the thousand assembled there, only Mahakasyapa is said to have understood the gesture and acknowledged it with a smile. Thereupon, the Enlightened One acknowledged the transmission of the right Dharma eye, the blissful mind of Nirvana and the ultimate reality to the Venerable Mahakasyapa.

The transmission is outside of the scriptures. It aims at the direct pointing at the mind for the perception of self-nature and attainment of enlightenment.

The Zen teaching traces its origin from this transmission. It remains a living tradition, passed on from master to disciple.

From the great traditions of Asia, Zen has found a new home in the hearts of many in North America and Europe.

Zen opens a whole world of possibilities for improving and appreciating ones day-to-day life through mindfulness and awareness of the moment.

Notes and Events:

Belmont Buddhist Community (BBC) is a lay-led, non-sectarian Buddhist organization serving followers of the Buddhadharma in Belmont County, Ohio and surrounding communities

The mission of the group is to:

  • Come together for meditation practice
  • Provide mutual support in the study of Buddhism
  • Cooperate in traveling to retreats outside the local area

BBC is lay-led by necessity, while recognizing the value of contact with a teacher and encouraging its members to take advantage of opportunities to work with teachers at retreats and other venues.

BBC is non-sectarian by choice, recognizing and striving to learn from the wisdom of all Buddhist traditions and lineages, but at the same time resisting the temptation of cafeteria Buddhism — picking and choosing the superficial and easy aspect of a tradition but resisting the deep and effortful aspects that are necessary for spiritual growth.

The goal of Belmont Buddhist Community is to encourage spiritual growth and development on the Buddha’s path in its members, for their own benefit and for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Notes and Events:

The Blue Lotus Dharma Center (BLDC) is operated by the Center for American Buddhist Practice. The BLDC approaches the Teachings of the Buddha in a two-fold way: First is to present the teachings in a very pragmatic way specifically for the American community without abandoning traditional Buddhist ceremonies; Secondly we offer traditional ceremonies that are free from any one specific culture and still strongly promote the true essence, proper conduct and requirements of those ceremonies.

The BLDC supports all reasonable Buddhist traditions and offers an environment where practitioners from any tradition/lineage can come and practice. This is not meant to be a replacement for those that are members of specific lineages or orders, but rather a “home away from home” for those that may not have a center or temple near by. For others, due to the approach to the Buddha Dharma that the BLDC offers, this is home. Either way, everyone is welcome.

One of the ways the BLDC looks to support all Buddhist traditions and the community of practitioners as a whole is by seeking to invite as many qualified teachers from the various schools and traditions to come and give teachings, empowerments or talks. The intent is to not only provide insight and education but to also promote a sense of unity between the various traditions, developing insight, knowledge and deeper awareness within a safe and open-minded community.

Teacher: Rev. Joriki Dat Baker  
Notes and Events:

Those who are new to Zen Practice should arrive fifteen minutes early for basic meditation instructions. Blue Mountain Zendo does offer cushion sets; however, it is a good idea to obtain a personal set if possible. Having your own set will allow you the opportunity to sit both with the sangha (group) as well as alone when at home or work. Also to note, if you cannot sit on the floor due to a medical condition, chairs are an option. If done correctly, sitting in a chair is no different than sitting on the floor. An offering for the temple is traditional for those visiting for the first time. This offering is symbolic of the “open” and “giving” nature of the new student and his/her recognition of the value of the teachings.

During Zazenkai (Extended Zen Service) the han is struck for the first time to start the beginning of the service. The ino then announces the first chant and the service begins. We chant in both Japanese, Pali and English to show respect to Zens roots and lineage. After the last chant, kinhin or walking meditation begins which will continue at various times during the service. The bell is struck and the sangha sits down to begin zazen (seated meditation) practice. During Zazen we become and remain still throughout the round while watching our breath or answering our Koan. Our eyes become half closed and focused downward on the floor in front of us to avoid distractions. The bell is struck (dink) after 25 minutes and to allow new students the option to stand up and face the wall or adjust their posture. The bell is struck once again after 10 minutes, informing those who are standing to please be seated. The final bell struck is at the 60 minute mark to signal the cessation of the sitting round. The sangha then does walking meditation or Kin-hin which will last for fifteen minutes. When kinhin is completed, the sangha once again is seated. To conclude, Rev. Joriki Dat Baker will then give a Dharma Talk and the service is closed with chanting. After the close of the service, tea and sweets are served in the kitchen; during this time, questions or comments may be posed in a relaxed atmosphere.

On the second Sunday of  each month, Dokusan will replace the Dharma Talk. Dokusan is the private meeting between the zendo’s teacher and its students. Dokusan is a formal meeting and idle talk is inappropriate.
