The main purpose of this project is to explain what Shinnyo-en followers should expect in Sesshin training. Shinnyo-en is a Buddhist denomination originally established in Japan. Sesshin is a form of meditation.
The 15-minute program actually covers much more than Sesshin. It explains how Siddhartha Gautama became Buddha and what the basic principles of Buddhism are. It covers the history of the Shinnyo-en denomination by explaining the life story of Shinjo Ito and his wife Tomoji. It shows the audience a structured Sesshin and explains precisely what goes on in the Meditation Room. Finally, it goes into the details of positioning one’s body for the best Sesshin experience.
