Bodhi Week

Greetings Friends,

It is such a wonderful Bodhi Week! Sitting zazen, mini-sesshin, together and engaging in service makes Rohatsu time special. For those who have not been able to attend in person we hold you in our hearts and your presence is palpable in the zendo among us. We still have a few more days until Bodhi Day on Thursday and we wish you a peaceful and enjoyable time of zazen practice in all forms for the rest of the week.

It’s an auspicious week to sit as much as you can, and please join at the tea house, when you can. Deep Peace & Great Love ~Issan & Zenho

AND HERE’S NOAH’S POEM FOR THIS WEEK:

I am learning that sometimes I don’t want to 

Speak

That the pace of life might just have to be 

lived

For there are too many books

Too many I-know-the-solution 

Too much wisdom 

that doesn’t change me

So I have returned to my 

Carpet floor

Lying on my back

As the sun scrapes across the sky

Loving the puddle of self-pity I become

Feeling a tickle of magic in the rolling day

And a glimpse rest 

Like a child

Resting on his mother’s lap 

After a day of glistening 

Life
