Kokoro-Kai, Summer Day Retreat of Tendai Buddhist Devotional Practices


A retreat day of

Tendai Buddhist Devotional Practices


"Kokoro" (心, also pronounced "shin" in liturgical context) is the Japanese word that has the dual and convergent meaning of heart and mind, in other words, the spirit. Devotional practices in Buddhism come from the heart and elevate the spirit.

Different schools of Buddhism tend to focus on specific sets of practices. Americans are often only exposed to practices that are meditative in nature. Tendai Buddhism places equal emphasis on a wide variety of practices. This retreat is an opportunity to experience the devotional side of Buddhism.
