Chanting is a practice that uses our voice and our heart to become clear and share our compassionate energy with all beings. A traditional 90-day Buddhist Kido (“energy path”) will be held in Bori Sa during the winter, open to all.
There is no minimum stay, and silence is not mandatory.
The schedule includes morning and evening practice, chanting three times a day, daily excursion and work at the Zen Center. It is an opportunity to practice together, increase energy, enjoy the winter on this wonderful mountain and help the Zen Center.

Kido is like having very dirty water: if you boil it one time, it becomes steam; then make it cold again, and it is clear water. Kido’s meaning is—my mind is boiled. Before-Kido mind was very dirty. After-kido mind is very clear. Before, dark water means bad karma, dark mind. We tried this Kido, and every body got this special energy. Special energy means to become steam. You know, like this steam engine has energy. Water has no energy; if you boil water, you get steam energy. So this steam energy makes the train go. So, when we try Kwan Seum Bosal, Kwan Seum Bosal, then our mind is correct nothing. True nothing means the Universe and I become one—that is special energy. Then slow, slow Kwan Seum Bosal means clear water, quiet mind, just-like-this mind. So, previous karma disappears; our mind becomes clear. (Zen Master Seung Sahn, teaching letter_422)
