Enjoy Zen and Japanese Garden on Saturday morning!

We welcome students to Hakone Japanese Garden.
With the courtesy of Hakone Garden, we are allowed to have Zen session before Garden opens. It is marvelous atmosphere.

Through the practice of Mikkyo Zen, students will seek how best to live in the present moment with less stress and less manifestations of the “Three Posions (Anger, Craving and Ignorance),” which in turn cause all suffering. Lectures and discussions will focus on the basic tenets of Buddhism and will be taught through the guidance of an ordained monk.

Basic teaching with a specific theme will be provided in the class to support students with future steps of self-exploration.

What you will experience at this class:

Short lecture of Mikkyo approach
Mikkyo Zen Meditation
Chit chat with Instructor
