vertical line But there is no one here with me. I live alone. This website enables me to sit with someone else.
Or maybe members of this forum want only to talk about zen... I don't think so. I think they also sit, and mostly with others... I wanna sit with you...

vertical line I have no possibility to sit with sangha. Alone it is too difficult for me. One zen sensei said once to me:
IF SOMETHING WORKS, THAT IS ZEN.
If I sit online together with others, I do sit.
If I do not write down online when I sit, I do it occassionally.
As simple as that.
Probably this is the 21st century zazen. The 20th is no more...

"Dear Sangha:

One of our Dharma Teachers, Myungjin Chung, has developed an online meditation community on Facebook, and would like to invite you to participate. Below is a letter to the Kwan Um Sangha and a link to the page.

Dear Kwan Um Sangha!

I am forming a “ Virtual Worldwide Meditation Community” in order to support meditation practice. This is one of my projects for a curriculum I am taking, designed to support and make differences in communities. The purpose of this virtual community is to encourage meditation on a daily basis, or at least three days a week. Whether practitioners are affiliated with a Zen community or not, whomever wants to make meditation practice part of their daily life would feel supported. We will encourage and support each other in our meditation practice, and connect people with a practicing community. Periodically I would like to create events so that all participants may meditate at the same time. For now we all can connect online through Facebook at www.facebook.com/VirtualMeditationCommunity

Participants can post their questions regarding their practice, or general questions about their lives on this Facebook page. It would be great for all to contribute their experience and wisdom.

I'd really like to make this experience a success for all who participate. Please send me your feedback and suggestions.

Thank you! I do hope this will be a meaningful experience for all of us!

Yours in the Dharma:
Myungjin Chung
