Zazen the main practice,
is « just sitting », shikantaza.
A fundamental aspect of Soto Zen is that practice and realization are not separate.
Practice, through us, manifests the unity and harmony of all life. It gives us stability and applies to
all areas of daily life.

1. Study and practice the Buddhadharma only for the sake of Buddhadharma, not for the sake of human emotions and wordly ideas.
2. Zazen is the most venerable and only true teacher.
