              <h4>How to Do Zazen (zen meditation)</h4>
              <div class="contentarea">
                <p>Practicing zen meditation is a big part of Zen Buddhism. The
                  Japanese word for Zen meditation is "zazen". "Za" means "sit"
                  and "zen" means "meditation". So if you're interested in
                  learning about Zen Buddhism, a good place to start is to try
                  doing zazen. On this page you can download a PDF file with
                  instructions on doing zazen. There's also two videos on there
                  of my Buddhist teacher, Gudo Nishijima, demonstrating how to
                  do zazen and talking about the meaning zazen. There's also
                  answers to four questions I was asked about doing zazen.</p>

              <div class="contentarea">
                <p>The Heart Sutra is a popular sutra in Buddhism. It's a very
                  short sutra with only about 300 words, but it's said to
                  contain the essence of what Buddhism is about. This is my
                  translation of the Japanese version of the Heart Sutra, known
                  as "hannya shingyo". There's also a link at the bottom of the
                  page to an audio file of the Heart Sutra being chanted by some
                  Japanese monks.</p>

                  alt="sitting lion">
                <p>The Buddhist precepts are guidelines for daily life for
                  Buddhists. Many Buddhists try to keep the precepts as best
                  they can on a day to day basis without doing any formal
                  ceremonies. But there's also a ceremony you can do if you like
                  to formally take the precepts. This page has a short booklet
                  about what the precepts are and how they came about. There's
                  also a couple of articles on their about me doing a ceremony
                  to take the precept and about what the precepts are.</p>

            <div class="contentarea"> <img src="images/cap.jpg" class="left" alt="me">
              <p>I grew up in Ireland, but left after college to spend a few
                years travelling. I arrived in Japan in 1991. I expected to stay
                a year, but ended up staying much longer. I began studying
                Buddhism with Gudo Nishijima in 1996. A few years later I was
                ordained a Buddhist monk. In 2001 Gudo Nishijima gave me his
                formal approval to teach Buddhism to others. I taught classes at
                Gudo Nishijima's Zen center near Tokyo, and later on I started
                teaching at the Young Buddhists Association at Tokyo University.
                I work as a translator, and live with my wife and our two
                children.</p>
