The Whole World Is a Single Flower,
Zen Blooms Everywhere
"The Whole World is a Single Flower" means equality, harmony and peace. It means that you and I, the sun and moon, earth and sky, air and water, are fundamentally not separate or different. We each have the same root.
Zen Master Seung Sahn founded the Whole World Is A Single Flower conference as a way to bring people from different countries and traditions together in the spirit of unity and harmony.
The Whole World Is a Single Flower is a triennial conference, and was scheduled to take place in Singapore and Malaysia from October 14-26, 2020. Due to COVID-19, the conference will take place online this year.
