The Art of Zen Buddhism

John Hart, our first guest speaker of the new year talked about his life as a Zen Buddhist.
He gave us a fascinating insight into the origin and evolution of Buddhism and the particular characteristics of Zen.  He showed and explained the clothing and artifacts that are used and described a typical meeting which would include a forty minute period of meditation!  Lots of questions were asked and I think members were made aware of how widespread the practice of Buddhism is in the world and this country.
