December is a traditional time to see all our friends and family and ask: “how did we all do this year?“ KUSZ Maha Sangha Morning Practice is about seeing our Dharma friends as the year ends.  We dedicate this morning practice to our Sangha community around Europe.

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.
