NYZ: Jodo-E Ceremony

December 8, 2021 @ 5:30 am - 7:30 am

Rohatsu (a Japanese word meaning “the eighth day of the last month of the year”) is held each year in Zen monasteries throughout the world to commemorate the enlightenment of Shakyamuni Buddha, which occurred when he saw a star at dawn on the eighth day of his retreat. During this week, we manifest the Buddha’s determination as he sat beneath the Bodhi tree, vowing not to rise until he achieved true awakening. Every student contributes to and takes strength from the powerful energy and determination of all. The week culminates in the chanting of the Jodo-E ceremony on the morning of December 8th.

Doors open at 5 a.m., and we will join the ceremony at DBZ via Zoom, beginning at 5:30 a.m.

All in-person participants must follow ZSS Covid Protocols.
