Buddha

star_auxAntaiji 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. We practice Zen without additions or modifications. Zazen is practiced solely for the purpose of zazen. What is that good for? The answer is easy: Nothing!
