Book Zazen Experience

Introduction to Buddhism & seated meditation

Seated meditation and Temple life experience

Zen Buddhism is a mixture of Indian Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism.

The essence of Zen Buddhism is that all human beings are Buddha, and that all they have to do is to discover that truth for themselves.

The practice of Zen meditation or Zazen (座禅), “za” meaning sitting, and “Zen” meaning meditation in Japanese, is the core of Zen Buddhism: without it, there is no Zen. It is a way of vigilance and self-discovery which is practiced while sitting.

Join us and experience Zazen in the quiet and stillness of a Buddhist temple, calm your heart and erase all of the negativity from your mind.

Experience available in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto.

Zazen Experience Highlights

To study Buddhism is to study the self, to study the self is to forget the self.
