Samu, work practice, is an integral
part of the daily schedule at the Zen center. During samu students
perform necessary tasks, like cleaning or tending to the gardens,
with complete attention, giving themselves completely to the work
at hand. In this way we bring our practice out of the zendo and
into everyday life.
The Zen center has scheduled
samu each Saturday morning from 7:30 a.m. to 8:45 a.m., when members
clean the zendo and common areas and do yard work around the property.
Members can also provide valuable help to AZC by performing
one of a variety of necessary tasks during the week.
