In this discussion group, we will be discussing a selected text related to Chan (Chinese Zen) Buddhism, with particular focus on the writings of Venerable Master Sheng Yen. The texts and discussion will be in English.

Since the readings are often related to basic concepts of Buddhism and are written in a clear and straightforward style, this group is geared toward a wide variety of participants, from those well-versed in Buddhist texts to those who are completely new to Buddhism.

We welcome everyone to take part in this wonderful learning opportunity, to discuss and study the rich writings in the Chan tradition. Most of all, through reading and discussion, we can apply the principles of Chan to daily life and enrich our spiritual practice.

About Dharma Drum Mountain (Ontario) Buddhist Association (DDMBA Ontario): DDMBA Ontario is a registered charitable organization with a TTC-accessible office and library in Toronto. Alongside other DDMBA affiliates around the world, DDMBA Ontario is devoted to promoting and facilitating the practice of Buddhist teachings through the Chan way of life. Our members are practitioners who are interested in learning the Buddha's teachings and the Chan way of life. By cultivating Chan mindfulness in everyday life, members benefit themselves and make positive influences to their communities, friends, and families. As such, DDMBA Ontario focuses on the application of compassion and wisdom, as passed down by the long tradition of Chan masters, and as now taught by Chan Master Sheng Yen and DDM’s monastic sangha.
