View Full Version : Greatest Hits #3: Jundo becomes a Rōshi - Celebrating Treeleaf's 15th

The title of Rōshi essentially means ‘old master’ or ‘old teacher’ and is an honorific bestowed on respected and loved teachers, similar to the use of Rinpoche (‘precious one’) in Tibetan Buddhism.

Jundo has never cared much for official titles and often says that Rōshi translates as ‘old Zen guy’. However, although as he says he would have refused this from most people, his respect for Daiho Hilbert (https://daihozen.blogspot.com/p/about-me.html) led to this beautiful ceremony at Clear Mind Zendo in New Mexico in August 2017.

Oh my, you guys are really digging out old skeletons from the closet. :eek:

Leon and I will be traveling back to the U.S. next month so that he can start college (details soon). I may have a chance to see dear Daiho as we pass through (Shinshi too). Will still be maintain distancing, however, until that second vaccine kicks in. [gassholook]

I've never seen this! I'm glad it got re-posted. And what a worthy Roshi gassho2 - in a way Jundo Roshi is an iconoclast; now online zendo's are a norm. hahhah

Love this [gassholook]. That's exciting news Jundo about Leon coming to US for college, but I'm sure a little nerve-wracking as well. Looking forward to hearing your details soon!

Good to see this again.

With my UK heritage RR always stood for Rolls Royce in my mind but then Reluctant Roshi seem more appropriate.

Enjoying these shares. [monk]
