This is a rare opportunity. Master YongHua decided to come to New York City. Join us to learn meditation and listen to his Dharma talk.
Master YongHua was born in South Vietnam. He came to the United States at the end of 1973 to attend college. He earned a BS degree in Mathematics from the University of Minnesota and an MBA degree from the University of Chicago.
After working for the corporate world for decades, he decided to leave the home life to study Chan under Great Master XuanHua in 1995. In 1999, he became fully ordained under Master Mãn Giác. He then went to Taiwan to study Chinese and the Vinaya for two years. He came back to the United States in 2001. He practiced in seclusion until 2005 when he started teaching Chan and accepting disciples. He now devotes his time in propagating Mahayana Pure Land Buddhism and training left home people.
What is Chan Meditation
Chan meditation is the most advanced form of Mahayana Buddhist meditation. We follow the tradition of Wei Yang lineage, one of five Chinese Chan schools transmitted by Grand Dharma Master Hsuan Hua. We adapt Chinese Chan training methods to the Western culture and call it “American Chan”.
Since 2005, students of American Chan from all walks of life and many continents have been improving steadily from beginner to expert levels, thus enabling them to better cope with the increasing complexities and challenges of modern times.
What we’ll do
– We start by greeting and stretching
– Learn sitting posture & several techniques of meditation
– Silent meditation 15~30 mins (We will decide that day)
– Questions and answers, socializing.
What to bring
– Bring your yoga mat or towel.
– Wear comfortably.
– Photo ID.
