Sitting for Rohatsu

Because the Buddha sat in such an unwavering way in the week leading up to his enlightenment, we too will sit, abiding in awakened nature.

December 8th is the day on which Soto Zen traditionally celebrates the Buddha's enlightenment. In Japanese it is referred to as "Rohatsu," which means the eight day of the 12th lunar month.

Join Konin for a period of informal sitting at Empty Hand Zen Center, 45 Lawton Street, New Rochelle, NY. Everyone is welcome!
