WHOLE WORLD IS A SINGLE FLOWER 2020
ONLINE INTERNATIONAL ZEN CONFERENCE SERIES
The Hoeh Beng Buddhist Temple is honoured to hold the first ever Whole World is A Single Flower Online International Zen Conference 2020. The zen practitioners from all over the world will be able to connect and meet online to participate in the international zen conference with the theme “Whole World is a Single Flower, Zen Blooms Everywhere” without the limitations of time and space.
The theme of the Conference is “The Whole World Is A Single Flower, Zen Blooms Everywhere”. “Zen” here means not only the teachings and practice taught by Zen Master Seung Sahn, but all the paths leading to true peace, harmony and equality, the same aspiration of Zen Master Man Gong when he calligraphed “The Whole World Is A Single Flower” after the end of World War II.
There will only be true peace and harmony when there is true acceptance of one and other between individuals, between families, between religions and between nations.
We are different in forms but all of us have the Buddha nature. When we fully embrace our differences and let go of our ego, we are able to utilise our functions to help all beings, thus achieving world peace. Through WWSF 2020 events, we will share with more people the importance of spirit of “The Whole World Is A Single Flower, Zen Blooms Everywhere” – we are one.
The Whole World Is A Single Flower Online International Zen Conference will be held on 6/9/2020, 13/9/2020, 20/9/2020, 27/9/2020, and 11/10/2020 (Total: 5 sessions, Each session’s duration about 2 hours).
Dear zen practitioners, please do not miss out this first ever online international zen conference.
