Seon Practice Service – Celebration of the Flower Garland Sutra
December 15, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Seon (Zen) Practice Services are held each Sunday from 9:00am-11:00am at the Historic Axe Factory building in Collinsville, Connecticut. For those new to Seon practice, please arrive at 8:30am for a brief introduction to the forms, which include chanting, bowing, sitting and walking meditation.
The Avataṃsaka Sūtra (known as Hwa Eom Gyeong in Korean), rendered in English as Flower Garland Sutra, describes a cosmos of infinite realms upon realms, mutually containing one another. Teachings of the Bodhisattva path, the interpenetration of phenomena (dharmas), the visionary powers of meditation and the equality of things in emptiness. This Sunday we celebrate this deep teaching.
