Every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and every Thursday from 7:15 p.m to 8:15 p.m., we offer a free guided group meditation practice with multiple sitting and walking sessions. Anyone is welcome to attend this practice. It is free to the public however online registration is required.
Every other Saturday we offer a book study group via Skype. Currently, we are studying the book, "Tea Words", early Chan lectures given by Chan Master Sheng Yen in America (1980-1997). This group is open to anyone who is interested in learning and sharing about the Buddha dharma.
Special events were held twice a year in the past. Experienced monastic teachers were invited from Chan Meditation Center in New York to give Dharma talks and guidance in Chan meditation practice. People from all walks of life came to practice Chan to deepen their understanding of themselves and learn to live in harmony with their families, friends and others in the community.
Master Chang Zhai was admitted into the DDMBA Sangha University in 2008 with major in Chan. In 2010, she received full ordination. Upon graduation in 2012, she returned to the U.S. Chan Center to assume a leadership role. Master Chang Zhai is fluent in both mandarin and English.
Master Chang Zhai visited DDMBA DFW chapter 10/27-10/28. During the dharma trip, master Chang Zhai led multiple sessions of meditation practice and gave the dharma talk of "the mindfulness of impermanence" . The participants enjoyed the dharma joyfulness and learned the Buddha dharma from master's teach.
