A New Jukai Class Forming
Sogen Yamakawa Roshi once spoke about the terms daihi and daiji: to take away others' pain and to bring others happiness. When we live by daihi and daiji, we are no longer being held hostage by the idea of a separate self. This is the true meaning of taking the transformative step of Jukai.
Would you like to take this step? Several of Shinge Roshi's students have recently requested Jukai, and she is now forming a new Jukai class, with the ceremony to be held at Dai Bosatsu Zendo at the end of Harvest Sesshin, on Saturday, November 6, 2014. A letter of request may be sent to Roshi by May 31, either through Hoen-ji or DBZ.
May 31 is simply the deadline for applications. You will be notified when the first class session and meeting will take place.
