Our members practise Zen meditation under the guidance of authentic teachers from the Sanbo Zen Lineage in order to come to a clear and experiential realization of their true nature (kensho). Though Buddhist in origin, we believe that Zen transcends religion and we welcome people of all religious background who are earnestly searching for the truth.
The practice of zazen will also improve one's concentration, equanimity and flexibility of the mind.
Registered since 1985 with the Singapore Registry of Societies, the Zen Society is affiliated to the Sanbo Zen Lineage. This school of Zen combines the practices of the two main Zen sects i.e. Soto and Rinzai Zen. Thus, we practise both shikantaza (just sitting) as well as koan study. Besides zazen, guidance include dokusans (personal interviews) and teishos (Dharma Talks) conducted by the resident teachers.
We hold regular Wednesday weekly group sittings, zazenkais (day long sittings) and sesshins (meditation retreats).
