Bowing

One day at the Zen center, a student asked Zen Master Seung Sahn, "Zen Master, why do we bow?"
Zen Master Seung Sahn answered

When we bow, we don't bow to anyone outside of ourselves. Bowing means our small I is bowing to our Big I. That's all. When we bow, we don't bow to anyone outside of ourselves. Bowing means our small I is bowing to our Big I. That's all.

Bowing is an effective practice using body, mind and breath to perceive our karma and change our mind habits. Daily 108 bows take place at Zen Buddhist temples in Korea and in all our Zen centers as part of the morning practice. At Su Bong Zen Monastery, a monthly 300 bows practice is held additionally.
