About the Event

Ven.  Chang Yuan (aka  Chang Yuan Fashi ) will deliver a series of dharma talks about the thirty-one essential teachings from the book Chan Buddhist Meditation, a collection of teachings of Chan Investigation, by Caodong School Chan Master Boshan Wuyi (1575-1630) in Ming Dynasty.

Drawing from his own meditation experiences in Chan Hall, Ven. Chang Yuan will direct participants to the correct approaches in Chan practice as taught by Chan Master Boshan.
