Welcome to Sanshin Zen Community!
Nirvana Day Sesshin and Ceremony
February 10 and 11;
ceremony on the 12th
We will sit in honor of Shakyamuni Buddha's entry into Nirvana with the death of his physical body. The schedule is the same as that for our other sesshins, but participants are welcome to come and go as they need to. No meals are provided and there is no registration or fee.
March 2 - 5
The sesshin is an opportunity for participants to focus strictly on zazen with minimal distractions following an intensive schedule.
Finding Meaning and Voicing It
Working from her translation of Kodo Sawaki’s Commentary on the Song of Awakening, Tōnen O’Connor will lead a one-day workshop in which we will explore selected passages from the 7th century poem, Shōdōka, along with passages from Sawaki Roshi’s Commentary, trying our own hands at commentary that brings the literal meaning of the classical text into contemporary expression.
