Rohatsu Zazenkai

Date: Sunday, December 8th

All over the world, on December 8th, persons of Zen celebrate the morning on which the Buddha realized his enlightenment. On seeing the morning star he said: "I and all beings on earth together attain enlightenment at the same time." Including all of us. Ours to also realize.

We are happy to be celebrating rohatsu this year with a one day zazenkai at the beautiful Bridge & Enrich zendo located at 718 East 20th Avenue, (Fraser and 20th) Vancouver, B.C. We will offer a dharma talk and celebratory service in addition to periods of sitting and walking meditation. There will be cookies.

Please contact Hoben ( to register or if you have any questions.. The cost for the day, including cookies, is $40 (reduced for those on limited income). Please bring your own bag lunch. All proceeds will be donated to our gracious and generous host, Bridge & Enrich Lives Society.

Please do come and lets sit together in celebration of our own inherent enlightenment. A coin lost in the river is found in the river.
