Jukai Retreat

March 14, 2016 – March 20, 2016 all-day
8500 Northeast Siskiyou Street
Portland, OR 97220

Our annual vigil-style retreat leads up to people taking the Precepts. During the Jukai ceremony, individuals receive the Bodhisattva precepts and formally become Buddhists. Receiving Jukai at Dharma Rain is a very personal step toward clarifying and deepening one’s own intention to live as a Buddhist. The Jukai ceremony will take place at 11 AM on Sunday, March 20.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend this open retreat full- or part-time. Registration is required for meals and overnights and must be received by Wednesday, March 9. (See below for registration.) All are welcome free of charge for zazen and ceremonies.
