Dharma Study Is Back!

Related topics:

Led by Shinge Roshi, we are re-starting Dharma Study on the first Sunday of the month from 2-3:30 p.m. EST.Dates for Dharma Study in early 2023 are Feb. 5, Mar. 5, and Apr. 2.

In-person students will meet in the Forman House, where a Zoom connection will also be available. We will read and discuss the last section of The Platform Sutra: The Zen Teaching of Hui-Neng, translated by Red Pine, picking up where we left off before the pandemic.

On Feb. 5, we will review Section 40 on page 216 (.pdf copy here).

All are welcome, and no prior reading is necessary. However, as a refresher and orientation for our discussion, we strongly encourage you to read on your own Part I, Sections 1-11, on pages 69-124. The book may be purchased when you visit the Forman House or visit the publisher's website. Copies of this month’s section are provided for those who don’t have their own books.

We encourage you to come in person, ideally joining us for morning service, starting at 10 a.m., followed by two periods of zazen until 12:30. Be sure to follow our Covid Protocol. Bring your own vegetarian lunch. Let us know you’ll be joining us, whether for morning and afternoon or just for Dharma Study, by emailing us at admin@hoenji.org.
