Public Talk:
"Zen Practice in Daily Life"

7- 8:30pm

Join us for this dharma talk with Hosokawa Roshi (we are requesting the topic "Zen Practice in Daily Life," but he may of course go off in any direction he chooses). This is not a formal talk, so bring your questions and you will have the chance to ask.

Quarry Arts Building, Room 170
715 Hill Street, Madison WI

(Parking is permitted in the Whole Foods lot across the street)

Suggested offering: $20 (please donate less or more according to your means; donations go to cover the expenses of Roshi's trip).


On Thursday the 27th Hosokawa Roshi will spend part of the day at Korinji. Guests may join us at any time in the afternoon (welcome at the monastery residence for dinner at 4:45pm). We will have zazen at 6:30, followed by informal group chat. We will then adjourn to a nearby restaurant for conversation and good company.

Korinji Rinzai Zen Monastery
S470 Hirst Road, Reedsburg WI

(Park in the gravel lot at that address...look for the blue fire number "S470", as you will not see the monastery from the road. A trail at the rear of the parking area leads down into the forest and then up to the monastery. Please watch your step...our property is hilly! If you are unable to walk the trail please let us know and we will welcome you at another entrance.)

A donation box will be set out if you would like to contribute to support the monastery.

QUESTIONS: please email to
It is relatively easy to accomplish the important matter of insight into one’s true nature, but uncommonly difficult to function freely and clearly [according to this understanding], in motion and in rest, in good and in adverse circumstances. Please make strenuous and vigorous efforts towards this end, otherwise all the teachings of Buddhas and patriarchs become mere empty words. - Torei
