dbz rohatsu sesshin 23 cal

Rohatsu is held each year at Zen Buddhist temples and monasteries throughout the world. This eight-day intensive sesshin commemorates the enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha on the eighth day after he vowed not to rise from beneath the Bodhi tree until he achieved true awakening. Motivated by his dedication, we enter into Rohatsu as an unsurpassable opportunity for deep practice and realization. Rohatsu begins the evening of November 30 and concludes on the morning of December 8 with Jodo-E (Buddha’s Enlightenment Ceremony). Each day, scheduled sittings extend farther and farther into the night. Each evening we will hear Hakuin Zenji’s “Rohatsu Exhortations.” Chigan Roshi, Shinge Roshi and Hokuto Osho will give teisho and offer dokusan. 

The fee is $525 for Supporting Members  and $600 for nonmembers. Please consider becoming a Supporting Member. Please consider becoming a Supporting Member of ZSS.
