NYZ, Gempo Roshi/Segaki All-Day Sit, June 17. Join us for the annual Segaki Service. For one day, we invite the spirits of our ancestors into the temple and offer our chanting in gratitude for the profound impact the lives of all who've come before us have had on our own lives. Whether or not you will attend, if you would like the names of your loved ones included in the Mandala Day chanting dedication, email the office with a list. Doors open at 7:15 a.m. There will be a formal lunch served in the zendo. A suggested donation of $30 for members or $40 for nonmembers is appreciated.

DBZ, 41st Anniversary Sesshin, July 1-8. Celebrate the founding of Dai Bosatsu Zendo. Click here for information or to register.

DBZ, O-Bon, August 12-13. This beautiful, moving ceremony honors our ancestors, family members, and other loved ones who have passed away, as well as the hungry ghosts within and outside us. We will begin on Saturday afternoon by painting the names of our deceased loved ones on paper lanterns and then gather for the O-Bon dinner offering. A traditional chanting service and calling of the names of the deceased will follow. We will then light our lanterns and make a silent, candle-lit procession to the bank of Beecher Lake, where we will float the glowing lanterns across the dark waters as we chant. A large bonfire and festive refreshments will complete the evening. On Sunday, there will be optional morning service and zazen, followed by breakfast. Fees are $250 for adults and $75 for children twelve and under; lodging and all meals are included. If you plan to attend, please call (845) 439-4566 or email the DBZ office.

DBZ, Family Weekend, August 25-27. A special weekend with lots for the whole family to do. $350 fee.
