Ekai Korematsu Roshi

Introduction to Fukanzazengi
(Principles of Seated Meditation)

At E-Vam Institute or Online via Zoom– Every Friday 12 July – 2 August

 

E-Vam Institute is very proud to present Ekai Korematsu Roshi. Continuing the annual tradition as requested by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX, Ekai Roshi will teach “Fukanzazengi, a text by Dogen Zenji.

Consisting of four one-and-a-half-hour sessions, Ekai Korematsu Roshi will discuss Dogen Zenji’s text“Fukanzazengi” (Principles of Seated Meditation).

Dogen Zenji challenges conventional notions of effort and method in realizing the pervasive nature of the Way, urging practitioners toward non-thinking and the essential art of zazen.

Bielefeldt’s translation of the text extends to posture and mindset, emphasizing the simplicity and universality of Zen realization.

Through these lectures, participants are invited to earnestly engage with the practice, demystifying the path to enlightenment and highlighting its relevance in everyday life.

 

“…Therefore, stop the intellectual practice
of investigating words and chasing after talk;
study the backward step
of turning the light and shining it back.
Body and mind will drop away of themselves,
and your original face will appear.
If you want such a state,
urgently work at such a state. “
Buddhist Summer School 2022 – E-Vam Institute
