“While you are continuing this practice, week after week, year after year, your experience will become deeper and deeper, and your experience will cover everything you do in your everyday life. The most important thing is to forget all gaining ideas, all dualistic ideas. In other words, just practice zazen in a certain posture. Do not think about anything. Just remain on your cushion without expecting anything. Then eventually you will resume your own true nature. That is to say, your own true nature resumes itself.” – Shunryu Suzuki Roshi
Zazen is a meditation discipline in the pursuit of inner calm, and insight into one’s true self and the nature of existence.
Instruction and practice in Zen meditation in the tradition of the San Francisco Zen Center and Shunryu Suzuki Roshi is offered at our school twice weekly, and is open to all students and members of the public.
