The bodhisattva from Nazareth.
Offers side-by-side practice and study of Zen Meditation and Christian Contemplative Prayer.
Incorporated in 1992 as a non-profit Ecumenical religious corporation. The purpose of the organization is to encourage and support ourselves and others on the Way of deepening awareness and realizing Life. For direction and guidance toward realizing this purpose we look to teachers from the Christian contemplative tradition as interpreted by Fr. Willigis Jaeger, OSB, and from the Zen Buddhist tradition of the Diamond Sangha.
An expression of the similarities between Zen and Christianity.
Talk given by Yamada Roshi. "Zen is not a religion, in the same sense that Christianity is a religion. Therefore, there is no reason why Christianity and zazen cannot co-exist. Almost all Buddhist sects can be called religions. Zazen, however, is quite different in this respect. Quite simply, it is the core of all Buddhist sects."
