Shin San Shiki – Ascending the Mountain

mountain-seat-ceremonyThis Sunday, February 7, a special ceremony will take the place of the usual Sunday service and Dharma Talk. It includes a procession where the incoming Co-Abbot Pro Tem arrives at the temple, doing bows, intoning dharma phrases, and is greeted by the sangha amidst much ceremonial. The procession includes temple officers and representatives from different aspects of the sangha.

We will have zazen and sanzen as usual from 8:30-9:40am. The procession starts at Siskiyou House at 9:30 and makes its way slowly to the Sodo with stops along the way.

For more information on the wider context of this ceremony, see Gyokuko’s letter.
