South Korea - Budha in Meditation Hall
The Great Enlightenment and Compassion of the Buddha has been transmitted to lineage masters throughout human history. Buddha means "Enlightenment" or "Enlightened Being." The focus of Lineage Zen is to learn Buddha's enlightened mind through the practice of Hwa Du (Kong An). It does not depend on words, phrases, principles, dogmas, sutras or written scriptures, but focuses on attaining the true nature of all beings directly. This method is called "mind-to-mind" teaching and it is the core teaching of Korean Buddhist Chogye Order and is now being spread throughout the world by lineage masters.
