Harvest Sesshin at Dai Bosatsu Zendo

Related topics:

This year’s Harvest Sesshin will culminate in the Jukai Ceremony in which dedicated Zen students receive the Buddhist Precepts from their teacher. “Ju” is a synonym for “kaku,” “to realize.” “Kai” means “Precepts,” but it is also a synonym for Buddha-nature. So in the most profound sense, Jukai means “to awaken to ultimate freedom.” Shinge Roshi will conduct the Precepts ceremony on the last day of this sesshin.
