【SEMINAR】Zen and Shugendo – The Connection Between Mountain Philosophy and the Japanese People
9/2 15:20～ KENCHO-JI 1F Hojo
Shugendo is a philosophy and a study which is practiced by watching how we feel with Mother Nature.
Thinking of Zen, why did Buddha achieve enlightenment under a bo tree?
He became one with the bo tree.
People will be spiritually awakened when they are in nature and merge into it.
It is not necessary to think and understand something in your mind. The thought doesn’t make anyone happy, and you cannot see any hope for the future.
What you need is to feel deeply in your heart. It is the path to happiness. Try to connect, feel and enjoy nature now !
