6:00 PM to 7:00 PM – The Zen Mind

The Zen Mind is a journey across Japan to explore the practice of Zen. We reveal the daily routine of a zen monk and take you inside the walls of the zen monastery and into a world never imagined by outsiders. Step inside the zendo or meditation hall, where the monks sit in zazen – searching for the middle path to enlightenment – it is a long hard journey. Every aspect of zen is uncovered – from a zen center in the middle of the bustling streets of Tokyo, to the mountains above Kyoto. Includes interviews with major zen masters and roshi.
