To sit under supervision, Jukai and the way it is...
Hello my friends.
It´s been a good time since I didn´t post something here on this forum.
Well, here I am again. I missed you, my "Ronin"-Zazen fellas.
Tryed to apply on several monasteries here in Brazil, but I´m too distant to be accepted I guess...
The main question is: How one can apply for the next Jukai cerimony? What should one do?
How can we do Dokusan (at least to "start" having personal interviews to direct practice) with the teachers...?
Good to be back.
"Studying Zen (sanzen) is zazen.(...)"
"Therefore, put aside the intellectual practice of investigating words and chasing phrases, and learn to take the backward step that turns the light and shines it inward. Body and mind of themselves will drop away, and your original face will manifest."
