Bodhi Day

In several East Asian calendars today is the anniversary of the culmination of Gautama Siddhartha’s long search.

After years of hard investigation, after sitting down and just being present to what is, he glanced up in the morning sky and witnessed the morning star.

Just that.

Just this.

Many people of the Zen persuasion are sitting retreats that touch upon this day.

Our own Boundless Way as part of its adaptation to our Western culture observes our Rohatsu retreat over the second weekend in December.

So, just shy of fifty of us will be gathering at our new temple Thursday evening…

May all beings see into their true nature,

And find the way of joy and peace…

(thank you Bobbie for the pointer to the video…)
