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.

MAHA SANGHA-Samstage im Dezember 2020 , Zen Zentrum Wien

The month of December is the month of love and compassion. It is a really special time for us to come together — especially now when the Corona Virus is affecting everyone’s health and lockdowns are making it impossible to come together face to face as it is traditionally done.

The teachers of the Kwan Um School of Zen Europe invite all practitioners, not only in the European Sangha but also from around the world, to join a special online Zoom Zen Practice on the following Saturday mornings:

  • Dec. 5th: Opening speech: ZM Bon Shim, Dharma talk: ZM Hyon Ja
  • Dec. 12th: Dharma talk: ZM Ji Kwang
  • Dec. 19th: Dharma talk: ZM Gu Ja, Closing speech: ZM Bon Shim

Our schedule for each of these Saturday mornings (CET time):
 8:00: Start
 8:05: 108 Bows
 8:30: Dedicated chanting Kwan Seum Bosal
 8:55: 2 x 30 minutes Zen meditation (with 5 minutes break in between)
10:00: Dharma talk
10:20: Open space for questions and answers.
11:00: Four Great Vows and End.
