    PLEASE WITNESS: Our Treeleaf 'Shukke Tokudo' Ordination 2012

    Dear All,

    I hope all will join in watching, witnessing and sharing today's "Shukke Tokudo" priest ordination of Shinkai and Dosho ... conducted by Jundo. This is an important moment for any Buddhist Sangha, and a time for celebration. Congratulations to our new ordainees! We also re-welcome Myozan, ordained by Taigu at our last Retreat, as the three together become our new novice priests in training. They join our current novices, Mongen, Shohei and Fugen, their older brothers.

    Be sure to toggle to "FULL SCREEN" for the full effect (the little button on the lower right of the Youtube screen)

    The ceremony is traditional, yet groundbreaking ... for we believe it is only the second time (both at Treeleaf) that a Buddhist Ordination has been performed simultaneously across the world (today with Jundo in Japan, and our ordainees in New York and Texas) ... yet face to face and heart to heart ... beyond here there, now or then.

    I will have more information tomorrow, as I am a bit tired from showing our visiting Dokan a little around Tsukuba today. I thank him very much for his able and attentive assistance during the ceremony as Jikido.

    Another view of the scene, taken on Google plus with several of our Sangha members watching, is here ...

    My heart-felt congratulations to my sister Shinkai and my brother Dosho. Jundo (and Dokan): A job well done.

    May we support each other in the years ahead, as we have supported each other in the years past. May we be of some service to this great Sangha as it continues to flourish.

    Gassho Shinkai and Dosho.
    Gassho Mongen, Shohei and Fugen.
    Gassho, above all, to Taigu and Jundo, our teachers, and to the whole worldwide Sangha that is Treeleaf.
    Gassho all.

    A couple of photos (thank you, Dosho) representing the spirit of today's "Homeleaving" always "At Home", finding the “True Home” we all share.

    Those photos are so sweet. During the ceremony I saw how difficult it was for them to put on the robes and Kesa. I never knew how much work that was until now.

    Gassho,

    I love Dosho's touching photos! I'm happy to see these posted here because it was really hard to see it clearly from my computer screen.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Gassho,

    Congratulations Dosho and Shinkai,

    that was a lovely ceremony to share in - made special by Doken's presence.

    Nice to see the photos Dosho - your son must be proud of his dad?
    Did your three year old sleep through?

    Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much Dosho and Shinkai, Jundo and Dokan, for sharing this occasion with us. I felt so grateful and happy to be a part of this ceremony - we all share a commitment to the path before you.... Myozan, you were present in heart as well.... Thank you for the commitment you have made.

    Willow,

    He didn't say he was proud of me, but he did say he was happy to have been included in the ceremony. And, yes, our 3 year old slept during the ceremony and all went as it should. Thanks for asking!

    Deep bows.

    Gassho,
    Dosho
