This Sunday we do a Term Opening ceremony to mark the start of the Fall Ango at Dharma Rain. Until the end of Rohatsu the temple schedule will offer many more ways for everyone to engage their practice. One of the ways that we work with Ango is to make a practice vow for this term. This Sunday everyone will have an opportunity to make a brief statement of their vow for the coming Ango. All are welcome. The Sodo is wheelchair accessible. Greeters are available to answer questions and orient newcomers, especially if you come a little early (8:10 or so). You can take advantage of the full schedule or may come to any part of the program.
