To study the Buddha way is to study the self.
To study the self is to forget the self.
To forget the self is to be enlightened by all things.
~Dogen Zenji

Beauty Day

We have been practicing Leave No Trace (LNT) for a long time. LNT is the practice of leaving things as we find them. When we use the kitchen or the Dharma Hall or a camping spot, leave it as clean as you found it.

The Beauty Way takes things one step further. We learned about the Beauty Way from the Ojai Foundation. The practice of the Beauty Way is to leave things BETTER than you found it. So after using a space, do something a little extra (get the cob web off the wall or pull one weed)

Beauty Days at the Zen Center are one Saturday a month when we take two hours to beautify the Center. We do gardening, cleaning and whatever needs to be done to. Join us from 10am to noon for beautification practice followed by pizza or a meal depending on what we decide.
