Forwarded for Zenshuji Soto Mission

From Daigaku Rummé, Head Priest of Zenshuji

Dear Friends,

Greetings. I trust this finds all of you in good health and spirits.

We are getting ready for another Study Group at Zenshuji which will be held on six Thursday evenings, 7:30- 8:50 p.m., from October 9th through November 13th, 2014.

My plan is to finish reading The Essence of Zen by Sekkei Harada, starting where we left off at the end of the last Study Group on p. 125.

All of you who participated in the Introduction to Zen courses as well as the other Study Groups have this book. This is the kind of book that can be opened at any section to begin the study, so all people interested in Zen and Zen practice are welcome to attend. There is no need to worry that you have missed something in the other Study Groups.

The first 50 minutes or so of the class, we will read the text one section at a time, following which there will be time for questions and comments. Each class also includes 30 minutes of zazen meditation.

The suggested donation for the seven classes is $40 ($15 for temple members).

I always enjoy these study groups and look forward to your participation.

Please contact Atsuko at webmaster@zenshuji.org if you wish to participate.
