Notes and Events:

As a general introduction to our meditation practice, the purpose is to develop focused clarity in our everyday lives by training the muscle of awareness and presentness in formal meditation sessions. Our style of practice is with eyes open, accepting of and sensitivity to our five senses, using the breath to focus us back intot the present moment, and a gentle relationship with thinking and an accepting relationship to thoughts. While this might seem to be a focus on personal development, our ultimate objective is to be better able to help and heal the societies we find ourselves in: home, friends, work and volunteering.

Meditation every second Sunday open to the public at the auditorium of Brentwood Co-op. From 9:30 to 1:30 (come and leave at any time). If this is your first time joining us for meditation, please use the contact information below for a brief orientation. The general schedule for these sessions is

Notes and Events:

Sangha

Many people come to meditate for different reasons. Some are stressed out from work, others are looking for enlightenment (good luck!) and others want to cultivate their meditation practice with the support of other practitioners. The Characters to the left translate as "Harmony at the Center of the Heart Chan Buddhist Temple". Our Sangha (community of practitioners) was formally established in March 2008 to serve those students and community members who wish to pursue in-depth study and training in Chan Meditation and Buddhist studies. We are a lay order, not monastic. There are no monks, nuns, or ascetic people wandering around. We emphasize the cultivation of insight and clarity through meditation practice; something accessible to anyone regardless of their background or religious convictions. Our Sangha is not affiliated with any other organization or temple, in China or elsewhere; however, because Master Fa Neng (法能師範) is a precepted Buddhist (via Shi Chuan Xue) in the lineage of Great Chan Master Hui Neng (慧能) (638-713 CE) and in the tradition of Great Chan Master Yunmen (雲門) (862-949 CE), our Sangha exists as a bead on a string of a long line of Buddhist practitioners dating back to Shakyamuni Buddha over 2,500 years ago.

Services: There are several courses of study and practice that are extracurricular to both Martial Arts and Meditation. They complement and add depth to ones practice. The following services are offered apart from our normal programs, and are offered free of charge as a gift of dana:

  • Triple Refuge Ceremony: This ceremony is all that is required to become a Dharma student/ practitioner of Buddhism. It is not a conversion, as we practice Buddhism as a practice... not as a religion. Buddhist practice can cultivate discipline and peace of mind through mindfulness and meditation, things which certainly do not conflict with most religions. At this occasion, people formally take "refuge" as a student of the "Three Treasures"... The Buddha (guide), Dharma (instruction), and Sangha (group of practitioners). It is at this time when one receives the black Hai Qing Robe (long Daoist-type robe with draping sleeves). This event is held quarterly, in the months of January, April, July, and October, as well as during the biannual precepts ceremony. Those wishing to take refuge and receive the precepts simultaneously, may do so at the June and December precepts ceremonies.
  • Precepts Ceremony: This ceremony is when people take 5 vows; to abstain from taking life, to refrain from lying, to abstain from stealing, to refrain from taking intoxicants to produce heedlessness, and to abstain from misconduct done in lust. At this time, they receive a Dharma Name / fo hao (佛號), a certificate to mark the occasion, and the 5 precepts in print with explication and significance. This ceremony is conducted biannually on the summer and winter solstices. In 2008, these will be held on June 20th and December 21st.
  • Interviews: Chan interviews are conducted weekly, after the meditation session.
  • Extra Practice: Students who have already taken refuge are welcomed to attend extra practice. This is held on Sundays a short while after meditation practice concludes. Those who attend the meditation practice are not required to attend extra practice. It is here when students do chanting practice (using those chants which are philosophically relevant to practice), bowing practice (moving exercise for the body/mind), in-depth philosophical analysis of various topics, and sutra study (using those classical texts which are useful for modern practice).
