Guided Meditation and Buddhist Talk
Emory Buddhist Club on Thursday!


Venerable Sunyananda is an American Zen Buddhist monk who has adopted a very pluralistic approach to engaging the dharma, and thus strives to foster an atmosphere where all are truly welcome to explore and integrate Buddhist teachings. He spent ten years in Christian ministry training and has experience with a wide range of religious traditions. He was first ordained as a Buddhist monk in the Korean Jogye tradition, and later fully ordained in the Vietnamese Lam Te Thien tradition with the transmission name of Thích Đức Tâm. He also studies and teaches traditional life protection (martial) arts. He is currently abbot of United Buddhist Church in Kansas City and Five Mountain Zen Order, as well as President of the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council.

Also, please join him and other monastics, including Master Thích Như Minh, Abbot of Vietnam Buddhist Temple Los Angeles and President of Vietnamese United Buddhist Churches, for a Foundation Stone Laying Ceremony at Boulder Park Meditation Center (Thiền Viện Thích Thiên Ân) on Sunday Jan 31 at 4pm. Free vegetarian dinner afterwards. 4050 Boulder Park Dr. SW, Atlanta, GA 30331

Weekly Spotlight




Buddhism in Korea:

Buddhism spread from China to Korea, and became the official state religion in Korea during the Three Kingdoms Period (57 BC - 668 CE) and Unified Silla Period (668 - 935), thriving in a "golden age" during the Goryeo Dynasty (918 - 1392). However, Buddhist practice in Korea suffered several setbacks and became politically repressed from 1392 - 1910. Today, the Jogye Order of Korean Seon has become the largest Buddhist group in Korea and is attempting to reinvigorate practice with authentic teachings dating back to Shakyamuni Buddha. Buddhism remains the most popular religion in South Korea today (although Christianity is expected to soon overtake it), and the strong history and cultural heritage of Korea remains deeply rooted in Buddhist practices.
