Silent Illumination (Mozhao)
This practice is rooted in natural concentration and observation in every activity, manifesting our Buddha Nature. This is a formless practice and is often simply called Sitting Zen. This isn’t limited to the cushion. It refers to of being rooted in whatever happens and practicing harmony in whatever we do.
Meditative Introspection (Hua tou)
This is the practice of establishing observation through seeing or looking directly at the Heart of What Is. Asking the question Who? in all activities. Who is mindful of the Buddha, of the breath, cleaning the laundry, etc.
