Zen Buddhism is getting more and more popular around the world. Zazen, meaning seated meditation, is a central practice of Zen. To practice Zazen, you have to fold your hands and legs and meditate. The essence of Zazen is to gain an insight into the nature of our existence. There’s no better place to do this than Seishoji, a prestigious temple and one of the three major ones of the Caodong school in Edo, or pre-modern Tokyo. Beginners are given meticulous guidance, starting with etiquette.
