Mandala Day, Soen Roshi Commemoration, BYO lunch, and Dharma Study (In-Person and Online)

Related topics:

Starting at 9 a.m., we will have special Mandala Day chanting, as we do on the third Sunday of every month, followed by Soen Nakagawa Roshi's commemoration, one period of zazen, and temple caretaking. At 12:15 we’ll gather in the Forman House for tea and bring-your-own lunch. 

Special note: A professional photographer will be taking photos of all our activities on Sunday. The photos will be used on the new Zen Center website we are designing.

At 1 p.m. Shinge Roshi will lead Dharma Study in the Forman House and on Zoom. We will read and discuss a passage from Part III of The Platform Sutra: The Zen Teaching of Hui-Neng, translated by Red Pine. All are welcome, and no prior reading is necessary. Copies of the book are available for purchase in the Dharma Hall. Photocopies of  this month’s section are provided for those who don’t have their own books. We will continue with Section 48 from last time, particularly the verse.
