YOUR EVENT

A ceremony creates identity and is community-forming. It gives a phase of life a clerical, formal and public framework to consciously carry out and process important life events.

Reexamination of the Transience of Life & Death

Each ceremony is used to wholeheartedly reexamine the transience of life and death. If the body is illusory, then what is not illusory? Should it be mind? Or spirit? Since mind is just a name, it does not subsist.

LEGISLATION

"Thou shalt! Thou shalt not!" is none of our business. We are politically and denominationally independent and are subject to the Swiss legislation. Our zen monks and zen nuns give your ceremonies a formal and public character and a blessing.

PROCEDURE

Since there are no compulsory and complex rituals for the ceremony, we will determine its sequences in accordance with your wishes.

  • In preparation for the ceremony we recommend a short templestay at the Zen Temple.
  • We will recite the "Logos from the Heart".
  • To symbolize the transience of life and death, each of those present can burn a pinch of incense at the end of the ceremony.
  • For more specific information regarding duration of the ceremony, schedule, additional texts and speeches, we will gladly discuss it with you personally.
  • Please note that the number of participants does not matter.
