What is this Zen thing anyway?
Who is DaiJu?    The Venerable DaiJu ZenJi (Simon Rowe) is an ordained monk of the Rinzai Zen Buddhist lineage. He has lived, trained in and taught meditation in Buddhist Monasteries and communities in Japan, India, the US and Europe.

While he has had the opportunity to learn from teachers of many different schools of Buddhism, including the Dalai Lama, it was not until he found his way to Japan that he met his true teacher.
Under his master, the Reverend ShoDo Harada Roshi, he experienced 7 years of continual training in the harshest of conditions and it was this Master and this Teaching which continues to guide all his choices in life now.

After leaving the monastery DaiJu studied Traditional Chinese Medicine at Sydney's own UTS where he achieved his B.HSc. (TCM). He has worked as an acupuncturist and herbalist in Europe as well as in Australia and is an active and enthusiastic explorer of the ancient art of TCM!
The Venerable DaiJu is an experienced and confident public speaker who is happy to give lectures or seminars on any aspects of Buddhism or Traditional Chinese Medicine and Health.
