Antaiji is a Zen monastery that commits itself to the practice of zazen and the study of the Buddha’s teaching, while cultivating the fields around the temple, cutting grass and trees and doing construction work to keep the community self-sufficient. Here at Antaiji, Zen is practiced without any additions or modifications. This means that Zazen is practiced solely for the purpose of Zazen. Zazen will not get you anywhere. Zazen without gain, Zazen which is one with enlightenment, is what is put into practice here.
