DBZ, Garden volunteers are welcome. Please call ahead to let us know your plans.
NYZ, Japanese Dharma Talk, Feb. 7, 2:00-5:00 PM. Rev. Miki Nakura, of Higashi Hongan-ji temple in Kyoto and the Shinrenbo New York Shin Buddhist Sangha, will give a Dharma talk in Japanese on the teachings of Shinran Shonin. All are welcome to join. There is no admission fee, though a donation would be greatly appreciated.
NYZ, Dharma Talk on Shin Buddhism, Feb. 9, 7:00-9:00 PM. Rev. Miki Nakura will offer instruction and lead a short seiza meditation session. He will then give a talk in English on the teachings of Shinran Shonin, whose influential teachings form the core of Jodoshinshu (True Pure Land) Buddhism; there will be time after for questions and discussion. All are welcome to join. Donations are appreciated.
NYZ, Parinirvana All-Day Sit, Feb. 14. We come together to commemorate Shakyamuni Buddha's final nirvana. Doors open at 7:15 a.m. There will be a formal lunch served in the zendo. A suggested donation of $30 for members or $40 for nonmembers is appreciated. For information or to reserve your space, please email the office, or call (212) 861-3333.
NYZ, Seiza Meditation, Feb. 15, 3:30-5:00 PM. When some of the first Westerners, such as Ruth Fuller Sasaki, were going to Japan in the twentieth century to seek instruction in Zen, D. T. Suzuki and other Zen teachers sometimes recommended they take up seiza meditation as a complement to zazen practice. In this spirit, Rev. Miki Nakura offers instruction and leads seiza meditation sessions at New York Zendo.
NYZ, Sangha Night, Feb. 25, 7:00-9:00 PM. Please join us on the last Wednesday of every month for the evening sits followed by tea and conversation. Since we all attend the zendo at different times--mornings, evenings, sporadically--we rarely have a chance to gather as a community. This is an opportunity to meet, greet, and get to know one another. Members and nonmembers, old-timers and newcomers--all are welcome!
