Winter has come and we light up the fireplace and put a blanket on our knees as we sit silently in meditation. Hyon Ja and Jan Sendzimir in the Vienna Zen Center invite all to join in and bow, sit, chant and listen to a great Dharma Talk by Zen Master Ji Kwang. All participating KUSZ teachers will answer questions.
