Zen at the Stafford Creek Correction Center

Jeff-FaXing

Fa Xing Shakya recently gave a talk on Zen Buddhism at Stafford Creek Correction Center in Aberdeen, Washington, USA.  In late May, he was invited to the prison’s annual Asian-Pacific Islander cultural event to give an opening blessing and say a few words about Buddhism to the inmate population.  Fa Xing has been volunteering at Stafford Creek for several years now, leading a weekly Buddhist service and Zen meditation.
