History Events

YEAR OF EVENTS :

Founder of the Buddhist Center in Zagreb, Croatia, Zarko first encountered Buddhism in 1975 and has been a martial arts and yoga teacher since the 1970s. In 1985, he started the first Buddhist study and meditation group in Croatia, which in time, grew into the first Buddhist community there, now known as the Dharmaloka Chan Buddhist Community.

In 1996, while seeking a new teacher, he met Chan Master Sheng Yen, attended one of his seven-day retreat, and, in the end, became one of his students. Seeing Chan as the very core of the Buddha Dharma and Master Sheng Yen as the man whose teaching stems directly from the meditative experience, he has dedicated himself to the practice of Chan meditation and has attended Master Sheng Yen's retreats regularly. In June 2001, during a two-week retreat in the USA, Zarko received Dharma transmission from Master Sheng Yen, thus becoming one of his five Dharma heirs in the West.

Give yourself a day for serious practice. Our intensive retreats follow the traditional Chan monastery retreat schedule, making the most efficient use of time in group practice.

Sitting periods are forty-minutes, and minimal instruction is given. Participants should arrive already knowing the basics techniques of meditation and be mentally and physically prepared for the demanding regimen.

Attending the Day of Stillness retreat the day before would be excellent preparation for attending this intensive retreat. If you attend both events you are welcome to stay over in our dormitory.

Most people find that attending these one-day retreats regularly can help renew the strength of their daily practice. The fee includes a vegetarian lunch.

“I heard that there is a Dharma method called Chan practice." “I heard that practicing Chan requires sitting in meditation." There is so much hearsay around about Chan practice. Is all about by yourself?

The Beginners' Chan Meditation Class helps people understand the concepts and methods for Chan practice, learn how to relax the body and mind, and experience the beauty of breathing.
