Event description

Description

Strong wisdom requires strong concentration - but the development of concentration can be quite challenging. Fortunately, the Yogācārabhūmi Śāstra outlines a detailed, nine-step process for gradually developing deeper and deeper concentration. Ven. Jian Hu, a Buddhist monk for 24 years, will walk us through an examination of this nine-step process and how to apply it to our meditation practice.

ABOUT THE TEACHERS:

Venerable Master Jian Hu first came to the US as a teenager, and completed both high school and university in California. After receiving a doctorate in computer science, he left behind secular life in pursuit of deeper meaning. He entered monastic life in 1994 at Chung Tai Monastery in Taiwan, and in the year 2000 he returned to the US to establish a Buddhist monastery in California. He is currently the abbot of Chung Tai Zen Center of Sunnyvale, CA.
