Shakyo or the practice of copying Buddhist sutras using brush and ink is a time honored tradition. It brings us into an encounter with the teachings without engaging the analytical mind. Slowing down, breath by breath, finding the subtle curves and sharp points of the characters, we concentrate for a few short hours on bringing a sutra into the world.
Konin will be offering a sutra copying workshop this coming Saturday at San Francisco Zen Center’s City Center. See the Calendar for more information, and a link to registration. It’s not too late to enroll.
