NYZ: Seiza Quiet-sitting & Dharma Talk
September 8, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Rev. Miki Nakura, of Higashi Hongan-ji temple in Kyoto, and the Jodo-Shinshu Shin Buddhist New York Sangha, will give a Dharma talk on Shin Buddhism and lead in the practice of seiza meditation.
Seiza meditation is done in a kneeling position or seated on a chair with the body inclined slightly forward. When some of the first Westerners, such as Ruth Fuller Sasaki, went to Japan in the twentieth century to seek instruction in Zen, D. T. Suzuki and other Zen teachers sometimes recommended they take up seiza meditation as a complement to zazen. In this spirit, Rev. Miki Nakura offers instruction and leads seiza meditation sessions at New York Zendo.
Reservations not required. $10 suggested donation.
