WHAT IS CHAN?
Modern Revival: The Work of Master Sheng Yen
In order to bring the benefits of Chan Buddhism to people across the globe, Master Sheng Yen spent much of his later life teaching in North America, founding numerous centers, including Dharma Drum Retreat Center in 1997.
Chan in Daily Life
In the Chan tradition, we try to incorporate the Buddha’s teachings into all aspects of daily life. We apply them dynamically, so that the practice becomes inseparable from daily life. In this way, we overcome the tendency to see spiritual practice as something special, separate from ordinary situations and challenges.
