DBZ: Rohatsu Sesshin

November 30 @ 4:00 pm - December 8 @ 2:00 pm

Rohatsu (a Japanese word meaning “the eighth day of the last month of the year”) Sesshin 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. In this intensive sesshin, 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, creating an unsurpassed opportunity for deep practice and realization.

The fee is $450 for members or $500 for non-members. Sliding scale available if you can come early to prepare or stay late to help clean. Transportation may be availble from New York Zendo.  If you have not attended sesshin at DBZ before, or for questions, before you register, call 845-439-4566, or email office@daibosatsu.org.
