NEWS & EVENT

12 November

Today, I did a student staff of the ZEN event for university students. I visited one of the greatest temples in Kyoto.
After the introduction of the temple, we practiced Zazen. By concentrating on myself in a silent space, I could be refreshed and noticed something important. Also, a Buddhist sermon by a monk, it was very interesting and I felt I could practice them in my daily life. The most impressive story was a poem, “Hakimono wo soroeru” which means “putting my shoes together.” When I take off my shoes, I often forgot to put them nicely at my home because I always want to go up to the dining room and have a meal. However, after I heard about this poem, I am trying to put them nicely every day.
Through a group discussion, we talked about what is ZEN which has been receiving a lot of attention all over the world, what did we feel by practicing Zazen, How the different values affect us. I could expand our world by sharing the opinions. Spending three hours together, and we could get to know each other better.
At the end of the event, we had a Japanese vegetarian cuisine. It was a heartwarming and great meal.
