    Opening of L'ermitage de la montagne blue

    Hi all,

    Thanks to the kindness of Kyonin and his ptrecious help, we are now opening a forum and source of teachings for French speaking people. It will be an open place for guest teachers to speak, a platform that will open a new and non sectarian approach in a Zen landscape riddled with hostility and acrimony between groups belonging to the same Soto style of practice. I will post vids about the ten oxherding pictures in the coming days.

    here it is, if you speak French or understand it, please, feel free to register.

    I wanted to add the forum to Tapatalk on my iPhone, but I can't figure out how. Tapatalk has you search for forums, so is there something that needs to be done on that side for Tapatalk to be able to connect? Most likely a question for Kyonin...

    Gassho,

    Thanks Taigu. If you open the site with google Chrome, it gives the option of viewing in English.

    Please forgive any mistake in my writing. Like in Zen, in English I am only a beginner.

    It's the best of both worlds...français and dharma! No more excuses to let my French deteriorate (as if I had any good ones to begin with). I am very much looking forward to participating.
