New Lay Disciples; Garden Waking Up

On March 9, six people became lay disciples. Kakumyo’s students are Minshu, Honei, Yusatsu, Sokuchu, and Zuiryu. Jiko’s student is Daiko. All of them have sewn rakusus and met all other criteria for becoming lay disciples. The sangha rejoices.

The weather is slowly getting better, and we are beginning to work outdoors again. Wednesday’s work party saw lots of mowing and spiffing up the grounds in preparation for guests. Compost processing is happening. Here, Ember tenderly cares for a special worm bin.
