Chan practice – it is not a religion, but an effective method to learn about ourselves and physical wellness. Many afflicting ideas can be dispelled for which the mind becomes stabilized. Moreover, our patience and concentration are strengthened with thinking process evermore clarified. On the physical level, metabolism increases and energy enhances.
“Chan, is the wisdom of living.
Through it, we can return to ‘ourselves’, the mind in nature.
Live your day mindfully and comprehensively.”
With years of Chan practice, Master Hsin Tao has harmonized the Guan Yin’s (Avalokiteshvara) Method of Listening to Sound, and meditation techniques from Theravada and Vajrayana traditions to create the Peace Meditation of Ling Jiou Mountain. With emphasis on the progressive Four-step Technique: breathing, attentiveness, awareness on inhaling and exhaling, and listening to the sound of silence, practitioners disburden hectic secular concerns to acquire serenity. We continue the practice to the point that we see our nature of mind directly – the Buddha nature. With the rapid exchange of information today, people’s minds are very much disturbed and anxious. Living in a conflicting and confrontational environment, we need a solution more than ever. Chan practice helps to settle down the mind in a serene space.
“When the mind is at peace, the world is at peace.”
