Notes and Events:

The Preston Serene Reflection Meditation Group was formed in 1994. We meet on Tuesdays at 7.00pm in St Peters Room, St.Johns Minster, Church Street, Preston PR1 3BU. The first time you come, one of our group members will talk with you about our practice and show you how we meditate. Our style of meditation is called "serene reflection meditation" - we are part of the Soto Zen tradition of Buddhism.

The group is affiliated to the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives. The Order is dedicated to the practice of the Serene Reflection Meditation tradition, know as Tsao-Tung Chan in China and Soto Zen in Japan. The Order was established by Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett to serve as the international umbrella organisation for the monasteries, priories (local temples) and meditation groups led by priests of our lineage in Britain, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, France and the United States. The group has strong connections with Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey, a Zen Buddhist monastery and retreat centre situated in Northumberland - its Abbot is Rev. Master Daishin Morgan. Senior members of the monastic community there regularly visit the group and also lead short retreats in Preston. They are also available on request to give private spiritual counselling to group members.

Notes and Events:

Centrum pro tibetská buddhistická studia Rabten Čhödarling bylo založeno v Liberci v roce 2000 jako pobočka Institutu pro vyšší tibetská studia Rabten Choeling. Tento institut byl založen v roce 1977 Ctihodným Geše Rabtenem ve švýcarském Le Mont Pelerin nad Ženevským jezerem a spolu s dalšími centry v Rakousku, Německu, Francii a Maďarsku tvoří síť respektovaných studijních center.

Duchovním ředitelem centra Rabten Čhödarling je Ctihodný Gonsar Tulku Rinpočhe, který je zároveň ředitelem ostatních Rabten center a externím profesorem na Universitě Johanna Wolfganga Goethe ve Frankfurtu.

Liberecké centrum vzniklo s cílem umožnit a zpřístupnit studium autentických pramenů tibetské buddhistické tradice se všemi jejími aspekty a přispět tak k jejímu zachování. Navazuje na tradici linie velkých duchovních Mistrů minulosti jako byli Buddha Šakjamuni, Nágardžuna, Asanga, Atiša a Dže Congkhapa až po Mistry naší doby jako Kjabdže Tričhang Dordžečhang a Geše Rabten Rinpočhe.

Richard Hunn Association For Chan Study

Address: C/o The Secretary 1 Westfield Road  Sutton, Surrey London SM1 2JY
Tradition: Mahayana, Chan Buddhism - From master Xu Yun (1840-1959), Charles Luk & Richard Hunn (deceased) - Shi Da Dao.
Affiliation: Chan Dao Martial Arts Association
Find on:
Contact: Shi Da Dao  Email  
Teacher: Shi Da Dao  
Spiritual Director: Richard Hunn (Wen Shu)  
Notes and Events:

Master Xu Yun asked Charles Luk to translate vital Chinese Buddhist texts into English, to help Buddhists in the West.  Charles Luk asked Richard to try and keep these translations in the public eye - which he did up until his death.  He founded the website to facilitate this idea.  On the site are numerous translated texts, designed to help the student wherever they are.

Creating a meditation space, wherever you are is the key practice.  This is essential for development.  This practice may be augmented by irregular Chan meditation weeks of intense introspection.  Such weeks are dependent on the use of suitable facilities, etc.  Which are not always available.

The hua tou method is used, whereby one meditates on a question such as Who s hearing? This will eventually lead to a startling discovery!

Peace in the Dharma.

Find on:
Main Contact: John Gisbey  Email  
Notes and Events:

Rissho Kosei-kai is a worldwide Buddhist organization founded in Japan in 1938 by Nikkyo Niwano and Myoko Naganuma. It combines the wisdom of both the Lotus Sutra and the foundational teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha. Its purpose is to bring these transformative teachings to the modern world.

The Lotus Sutra is a teaching of human respect, both the study and practice of a spiritual path that develops human potential, and a way of living that seeks peace for all people. By studying, understanding, integrating, and practicing the teachings, human beings can gradually approach a state of mind free from delusions, thereby enriching their own lives and those of others around them. Because everything is interconnected, when people devote themselves to benefitting all beings through harmony, they create awareness and develop a better world. This is the ideal for practitioners of the Lotus Sutra.
