On Rohatsu we commemorate the Buddha’s enlightenment by doing as he did sitting zazen all night. This year our annual Rohatsu all-night sit will again take place on Zoom, starting at 9 pm on Tuesday December 7th, and continuing until 7 am on Wednesday morning.
At 10 pm, there will be a Dharma talk by Musho. After that we’ll sit for the rest of the night in 35-minute periods with five-minute breaks between. Participants are encouraged to continue throughout the night, make their own breaks, and come and go as they wish. At 6:30 am there will be short service including the Verse of the Kesa and the Work Gatha.
Please join us for any part of Rohatsu to help celebrate this important date on the Buddhist calendar. Let’s embody Shakyamuni’s awakening and make the utmost endeavor!
There will be no registration or fee for this event, but if you can, please make a $10 suggested donation.
