It is 250 years since the death of Hakuin Zenji, the renowned reviver of the Rinzai school of Zen. All current Rinzai lineages can be traced back to Master Hakuin. As part of our celebration of Master Hakuin’s legacy, Zenways have created a new translation of Hakuin’s Song of Zazen. This short text of just a few hundred words captures the essence of Rinzai Zen teachings. Daizan Roshi will share the translation, and give a commentary and teachings. For anyone who wants to understand the essence of Master Hakuin’s Zen, this is an event not to be missed!

This event follows on directly from the intensive 3 day retreat held at Gaunts House and participants in the intensive retreat are welcome to attend.
