Dotoku

Zen Master Dogen’s “Expressing the Truth”

Study and Discussion Group with Hoshi Deirdre Eisho Peterson

Our study text for Summer Ango is Dotoku, from Master Dogen’s Treasury of the True Dharma Eye. It is the text out of which comes the Village Zendo’s formal name, Dotoku-ji, or True Expression Temple. In this study group we will read key excerpts from Dotoku and explore what these teachings on True Expression mean in our own lives.

There will be two periods of zazen prior to the Study Group, from 5.30 – 6.35 pm.

The Five Expressions

Practice Circle with Joshin Sensei

Learn about your unique way of expressing the dharma by getting to know the qualities and energetic manifestations of the 5 buddha families: vajra, ratna, padma, karma and buddha. Over four Sundays, we will look at the enlightened and neurotic expressions of these dynamic energies as shown in what we care about, how we act and how we relate to others.

Our Sunday Program starts at 9:30am.
The practice circles will be at 11:00 am following two periods of zazen.

11:00 amto8:00 pm

Join us for our annual OBON celebration at The Grail

Obon is a traditional way to honor one’s deceased ancestors. In our sangha, it is also a way to honor any deceased person we hold dear and respect. Traditionally, a lamp or lantern (bon) is covered with rice paper with the deceased’s name written on it, and the lamp is floated on water. The “O” conveys the respect for this ceremony. Spend the day in community creating your own lantern and taking part in two special ceremonies, The Gate of Sweet Nectar (Feeding the Hungry Ghosts) and the floating of the lanterns in the early evening.

Cost: $75:00*

For More information visit www.villagezendo.org

to register email: signup@villagezendo.org

*The cost of Obon Workshop covers materials for lantern-making and meals; it does not include overnight stay at The Grail. Overnight stay subject to availability of rooms.
