Ancestors

Genko Rainwater

Genko Rainwater

On Sunday, September 28, we did our annual Two Ancestors memorial service to honor Eihei Dogen and Keizan Jokin. Genko talked about honoring our ancestors, and of course this included some talk of Kyogen as he takes his place in the ancestral line. Who are our ancestors? How do we honor them? Why do we chant all those names? What are their stories and why does that matter? And maybe even more important, how do we continue to learn from and listen to our ancestors?

Listen to this talk.
