Saturday, May 12th, 3 to 4pm
After many years of practice, one of our members will be taking the Buddhist precepts on this day. This is a ceremony called jukai, in which one formally enters the Buddhist path, receives the rakusu (symbol of the Buddha’s robe), and a Dharma name (chosen by Sensei Al, Andy, and Laurie). Sensei Al Rapaport will be presiding. Please come to witness this very special event, and to support your fellow sangha member as he takes this step of deepening his commitment to the Buddhist path. By donation.
