NYZ: Parinirvana All-Day Sit

February 20, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

Join us in person and online for this all-day sitting at New York Zendo Shobo-ji, in honor of Shakyamuni Buddha’s passage into final Nirvana and in commemoration of Eido Tai Shimano Roshi’s passing on Feb. 19, 2018. We will begin at 8 a.m. with the Parinirvana Day Ceremony. At 10 a.m., Chigan Roshi and Hokuto Sensei will offer dokusan on Zoom to as many students as possible. In-person participants will share a formal jihatsu lunch (saiza). We will resume with zazen at 2 p.m. and a teisho by Shinge Roshi at 3 p.m. on the significance of Parinirvana Day and Eido Roshi’s teachings on This Great Matter.

In-person participants must: Provide proof of full vaccination including booster; show a negative rapid test result; and bring your own N95, KN95, or KF94 mask. In-person attendance will be limited to approximately 20 participants.
