Won Buddhist Study Group on Ilwonsang Vow
3 Mondays (April 30 - May 14) 6:30-8:00pm
Join us for three weeks study group on Ilwonsang Vow. The Ilwonsang (circular image, O) Sotaesan's expression of truth, symbolizes the Dharmakaya Buddha: the essence of buddhahood itself, and it is the Buddha nature of all sentient beings.
"We enshrine Ilwonsang in the same way that Buddhists in the past have enshrined buddha images. However, a buddha image manifests the physical form of the Buddha,
but Ilwonsang manifests the mind-essence of the Buddha."
"That circle image is a model for teaching the true Ilwon.
It's like pointing at the moon with your finger: your finger is not the real moon.
In the same way, a practitioner must discover the true Ilwon.
We will study the meaning of Ilwosang vow and why we chant it daily.
It includes sitting meditation, presentation, and open discussion.
