An app to introduce zazen and meditation.
I wanted to share my experience at a Zen monastery, so I made this app. The ascetic practice was not a beautiful world like the image people have in the world, but it was very human and I was on the edge of my seat everyday. In the midst of these days, I could not usually concentrate on zazen due to fatigue and pain in my legs, but suddenly there was a time when I could sit very calmly.
I can't describe it well, but I could feel the breathing of my fellow zazen practitioners, the sounds of nature, the space, and the surroundings.
It was just a simple case of sitting well. Oh, I'm sitting. That's what I thought.

Life at such a Zen temple was filled with sound. The sounds were different from the hustle and bustle of the city. At Zen temples, time is told by sound. The sounds of waking up, gathering, eating, chanting, sleeping, etc. are all different. Bells, sutra reading, wooden fish, woodblocks, sweeping, the list goes on and on. Even now that I have finished my practice, they still resonate in my mind.

Zen meditation does not give you any special ability, it does not make you fly, it does not increase your skills. A Zen master once said that there is a "one true man of no rank" in him. This is to realize that you are your original self, without any title, without anything, and that you are your original self. There is a Zen master who said, "Zazen is only ease. One Zen master once said, "Zazen is just ease," meaning to put down what you carry on your back, become yourself, and just sit.

I tried to create a simple application, away from difficult Chinese sentences and religious rituals.
That breath, that sound, that rhythm, that tempo, that feeling, that world.
I hope that the essence can be reproduced and conveyed in the app, even if only a little.

Sincerely yours
