The first branch of the 'Eightfold Path' is 'Right View' (sometimes called 'Right Perspective' or 'Right Understanding') ...
... It is to study and to come to understand the world through fundamental Buddhist perspectives and philosophies, and to make those ways of seeing a natural part of one's life. The Four Noble Truths, The Eightfold Path, The Precepts, the doctrines of Impermanence, the 'Middle Way', Non-existence of the 'Self', Cause and Effect, 'Dependent Origination', Buddhist views on the workings of the Mind ... the insights of later teachers such as Master Dogen ... the list goes on ...
It's not merely a matter of intellectual understanding, but of views which become a natural part of countless aspects of our lives.
Our Zazen Practice brings life to these doctrines, while each doctrine helps give shape to our Zazen.
