It is simple in its form but modern in structure and use.

Overview of Truc Lam Zen Monastery

Besides the Main Hall in the middle, on the right are the consulting room, the belfry and displaying room on the right; on the left are the sitting room, library, and contemplation hall. Before reaching the Main Hall, tourists may take two ways. They may start at the bus stop, take the side gate up 61 steps or, from the lake, climb the 222 steps through the triple gate onto the court in front. Inside the Main Hall, statues are displayed simply but meditatively. In the bright spacious sanctuary is the only statue of Sakyamuni Buddha raising a lotus in his hand – a symbolic image of Buddha in Linh Son Dharma Conference, expressing the philosophy of ‘existence in nihilism’ in Buddhist Zen.

Zen Monastery’s Activities

Zen helps people to live infull awarenessand bring their souls back into peaceful state. Truc Lam Buddhist Zen emphasizes on every one’s interior concentration, either a religious or someone in his/her family.

    Dear Brother ,I am a student and order member of Thich Nhat Hanh.
    One and a half year ago I was happy to meditate at Chuc Lam monestry
    for one month.(march-aril 2015) I had a good contact with the guest master at that time.
    His name is Tin(h) Dan(h). He told me that I could come back when ever I want.
    I seriously want to become a monk, and I woud like to come again to your monestry to meditate with you again.
    I ask permission to come at the end of February 2017.
    A lotus to you all
    Your Brother Arun ( that is the name they called me at that time)

    Hi I thought I’d add to this thread as someone who meditated at the nunnery for 5 дней. Just turn up and enquire- I started with one of the monks in the temples who pointed me in the direction of someone else, who in turn pointed me to speak to someone else who then instructed I wait for a few hours to speak to the head monk. Eventually I spoke to him and he granted me access to the nunnery. They seemed very open to people wanting to learn about Buddhism and my experience was one of the best I’ve had. The nunnery was also gobsmakingly beautiful. I hope to go back one day for longer.

    Здравствуй,
    my friend and I are going to be in Dalat in about two weekstime and we are looking for a truly immersive experience in zen meditation at a temple where Buddhism is practiced.
    Do you still have contact with Truc Lam monastery and can we ask for an invitation to stay for a few days via you and Dalat Trip?
    Otherwise, is the telephone number posted earlier on still in use?

    I am happy to send you more information about us via email.

    спасибо,
    John

    да, its possible to stay at the Zen monastery for the day with a monk’s permission. This is mostly for beginners who can slowly adapt to the life of the monastery. With the right connections and a reference from an ordained monk, its possible to stay overnight for some time with strict rules about following the same program as the monks and nuns. It is one of the few places I have been where women are equal to men and have their own quartets. I requested to visit the monastery and was gracefully received by an older monk who gave me a quick viva voce and he seemed pleased that I knew something about Buddhism and recommended I come on a daily basis. It was a pleasant experience with friendly nuns and a delicious vegetarian meal. Day visitors had to leave by 5pm. Unfortunately, due to persona l problems, and the cost of taxis to and fro, I was unable to continue with the daily program. But this brief experience was very rewarding.

    I am writing this on behalf of a Zen Sri Lankan priest, Sufu Nalaka. He
    was
    ordained as Ven Kurunegala Rathanapala in the Theravada sector in the year 1986. To find more freedom in his goal to attain the supreme nibbana, in the year may be about 2005 he was ordained as Sufu Nalaka, and since then is living lonely .in remote areas in Sri Lanka practising dhamma.

    The present situation in Sri Lanka is not at all suitable for other Buddhist sectors. An organisation called Bodu bala sena in Sri lanka has commenced harrassing persons who are practising other secors other than theravada.

    i am writing this to find out whether it is possible for him to find accomodation in your temple for a temporary period. Your corporaion in this regard is very highly appreciated. Waiting for a favourable respone I remain. спасибо. Theruwan saranai.
