Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us to question everything we fear. Why do we fear circumstances, things, people, or a places. Why don’t we realize that fear is a taught response, to the known and the unknown. Why are we taught to fear everything in life, right or wrong. The answers come from the same place as the questions; the mind.

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches you to question everything you are taught, even Chan Zen Buddhism. Why are so many people taught to fear letting go and holding on. Why are so many people taught to fear, being included, being excluded, being remembered or being forgotten. Why do people waste their time.

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us, if we fear everything, we suffer. If we fear being responsible for everything, and we fear being irresponsible, that is suffering, or the limitations of thought; a taught response to everything known, and unknown. Fear is a taught response; just like suffering.

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches you to fear nothing. Circumstances change, things change, people change

Thank you for all the information that you have provided on this site. It have truly been an enlightening experience. So much so that I would like to join the association. I have already downloaded the prayer book and I am studying the information on the site.
I do have one question, is there any association members in the Phoenix, Arizona area that I could contact and study with?
Again, thank you for the site and all of the information that you have provided.

Jerry

I'm so glad I found your website because I have been negative experiences with three leaders at the community center in the city where I live. Racism, and controlling issues. They see two Asians and one white. They refuse to treat everyone the same, they hog the Buddhist information by not giving much of it. They don't do any of the points the I have read about in terms of helping others to become happy, giving guidance, respect for is lacking. So I would like to learn from you. I have been practicing SGI Buddhism since April of this year. I was told by a white leader she is not interested in helping me and they have family they need to take care of. I had been changing for a teacher anyway, so I found you.

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches- There is suffering in reality. Suffering has a cause. There is a way to end the cause of suffering. The way to end the cause of suffering is called the bliss of peace. Suffering is not a concept. Suffering can start with ignorance and it can end with madness. The way to confront ignorance is to come together as a people, as a community, and as friends. The way to stop madness is to stay together as a people, as a community, and as friends.The bliss of peace is not passive, and it is not a concept. Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us, in reality there is peace, and it has a cause, us.

I am employed with nbc universal. My family member had backed up Tina Turner in the past. He is a jazz musician in the business. His name is Mr. George Walker renowned in the business. My old Buddhist friends had back up Tina Turner as musicians for SGI in the 80's.


I am on facebook with Lou Ferrigno the incredible Hulk.

Thank you!

Chan Zen Buddhism teaches- perfection is not a state of mind, a state of being, a definition or a destination. In reality perfection is a connection. It is a connection to family, to friends, to community, and to values. It is a connection to nature and creation. In reality you can change your circumstances if it makes you happy. You can buy all the things you want or you can give it all away if it makes you happy. You can invite people into your life or shut them out if it makes you happy, but Chan Zen Buddhism teaches us circumstances change, things change, people change, and you change. If you’re happy in reality that is perfection, if you're not then where is the connection.
