Shakyamuni Buddha's Enlightenment Sesshin
A special sesshin to commemorate the anniversary of Shakyamuni Buddha's Enlightenment. The last night of the retreat we will sit from midnight to 4:00 a.m. and conclude with a memorial procession to Shunryu Suzuki-roshi's stupa.
For those who cannot make Rohatsu during the week, join us Friday, Dec. 7 at 7:30 p.m. for tetsuya, “the all night sitting.” Following the all night sit, at 6 a.m., we will walk in procession down to Suzuki-roshi’s stupa for the founder’s ceremony. We will close Rohatsu with breakfast in the Sangha House. All members are encouraged to attend tetsuya and/or the founder’s ceremony.
