April Update

The first weekend Zazen-kai was offered April 1 – 3, with a full schedule from Friday evening through Sunday noon at the CBA. The schedule ended with the Hanamatsuri ceremony, celebrating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birthday. The weekend was held to honor Joshu Rôshi’s birthday and was a great success. A total of eleven Zen Students joined for a wonderful time.

On April 8 Kyozan Joshu Roshi completed his 98th year and stepped into walking the 99th. Roshi has been very energetic lately and the six Dai-sesshin he was scheduled to lead between January 1st and April 8th are a sign for his amazing devotion and energy. We wish Roshi health and well being.
