The founding vision of Chan (Zen) Community Canada is to apply flexibly and comprehensively the original tradition of the Chinese Chan (Zen) sect -- "Directly applying true mind, Directly realizing true nature and Directly manifesting true wisdom", so that all human beings in the global village can immediately and universally put it to good use in their daily lives and in the worldly societies.
In spite of the essential and profound contents of Chan (Zen), its application is simplicity itself. In fact, this "gateless gate" is changeable in depth, and is applicable to all practitioners. In other words, it is approachable by every practitioner through direct practicing, actualizing and manifesting the pure awareness and profound function of the inherent wisdom.
Chan (Zen) Community Canada is popularizing the Chan (Zen) teachings by way of establishing the local Chan (Zen) Communities, and for the purpose of carrying out the Chan (Zen) practice and compassionate caring. Hence, all Chan (Zen) practitioners in the local Community is able to nourish their intrinsic merits and wisdom so as to contribute to the peace, harmony, altruism and happiness of the worldly communities.
