For Guo Gu

Guo Gu I always enjoy your detailed and well presented answers to questions.

Finally I have one to ask!

We know Dogen studied with Rujing who was from the Caodong school of Chan Buddhism.

As far as we know this school had an emphasis on seated meditation. Do we know any details of their approach to seated meditation?

Lately I have been really drawn to places like Gyobutsuji Zen Monastery in America & Antai-ji in Japan because of the emphasis of Zazen.

I have heard though that in some of the ancient traditions of Chan some of the practices of meditation were closer to the absorption states (Jhana) practiced in Theravada.

Thank you for taking your valuable time to help us students :O:
