Kwan Um School of Zen
No matter what anybody says and no matter how well anything can be explained, it is finally all up to you.
The wonderful thing about Buddha’s teaching is that Buddha taught us not to accept something just because a wise person or an expert said it. Don’t accept something because a holy book says that it’s true, or because of tradition.
You must find the truth for yourself.
Zen Master Wu Bong
The Cologne Zen Group of the Kwan Um Zen School was created many years ago. In 1991 the Berlin sangha organized a lecture and a Yong Maeng Jong Jin (Zen Retreat) with Zen Master Wu Bong, without having a single contact in Cologne.
Those interested began a regular meditation practice in Cologne and a stable meditation group developed.
