The Zen Buddhist Order of Hsu Yun, developed by the founders of the Nan Hua Zen Buddhist Society, was the first exclusively electronic ministry on the Internet. The priests of ZBOHY follow the ancient teachings of Hui Neng and Lin Chi and the modern teachings of Hsu Yun. The Sangha has no dues or fees of any kind, neither do we accept donations of any kind. Our site is maintained by volunteers all over the world in a spirit of service. Precepts are given free of charge to correspondents who have demonstrated a sincere desire to follow the Buddha's EightFold Path.
The Zen Buddhist Order of Hsu Yun is pleased to announce the coming ordination of Frederic Douet (Qian Men Shakya) as a fully ordained Zen priest. The ceremony will be held on August 11th, 2015 at the “Shen Mie Lun Zen Hermitage”, Saint-Just, Bretagne, France.
The ceremony will be performed by Master Yao Xin Shakya as the main ceremony in a four days private retreat.
Our congratulations toQian Men for this new step on their Buddhist path that is the culmination of several years of study and practice within our order (and within Yao Xin Shakya’s “Dharma Winds Zen Hermitage”)
