Zen Practice Service – Uposatha Observance
September 17 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Group Zen Practice is held each Sunday from 9:00am-11:00am at the Historic Axe Factory building in Collinsville, Connecticut. For those new to Zen practice, please arrive at 8:30am for a brief introduction to the forms, which include chanting, bowing, sitting, and walking meditation.
The Uposatha Observation is an ancient practice in which both lay and monastic practitioners placed special effort, and attention to renewing and rededicating themselves to the study and practice of the Dharma. These observations fell on Full Moon periods of the lunar calendar. And so WLHZ continues in this practice tradition by reciting together the Five Precepts of ethical conduct.
