Zen Meditation in Ryosokuin

I experienced the Zen meditation for the very first time in the morning of June 2nd, in Kenninji Temple's Ryosokuin in Gion.  We arrived at the temple before 8AM, and there were about 40 participants. 

They ask you to take off all accessories and watches before mediation, and also wearing comfortable clothing is important.

After the meditation, green tea was served, and a priest gave us a small lecture which was very profound.  It was a very fruitful experience.  (Fee is 1,000 yen.)

To participate meditation, please contact Ryosokuin by phone (075-561-3216) or by application form in HP.
