Temple Stay: Daily Rites -- Seon (Zen) Meditation

View and Read More

Seon is a form of meditation similar to Zen that allows a person to reflect on oneself. Korea is renowned for retaining this outstanding meditation tradition that continues to flourish today. Korean Buddhism proudly continues the meditation tradition with two 3-month intensive retreats, one in the summer and one in the winter.

All Buddhist traditions include some form of meditation, and Seon is way to practice meditation in Mahayana Buddhism. This meditation brings an end to the 'monkey mind' that we all experience so that our minds become clear and we can return to our original self. There are many other terms for this return to the original self, including enlightenment, awakening, and realizing one's Buddha nature.
