Practice : Work Practice

Schedule     Sitting     Bowing     Chanting     Kong-an Interviews    

At all times, you must make use of
the power of skillful means and the
wisdom of applied practice.
An eminent teacher once said, "A day without work is a day without food." There is inside work and outside work. Inside work is finding our true selves; outside work is helping others. Zen tradition has always flourished in working communities that sustain themselves and grow through together-action in everyday life. Work practice provides opportunities to learn and teach new skills, serve the community and temple, and share in our practice. Many kinds of volunteer service is welcome, including carpentry, painting, maintenance, gardening, cooking, and cleaning.
