• Treeleaf 'Shukke Tokudo' Ordination Ceremony: THIS SUNDAY





    This Sunday, our Sangha will welcome new novice priests through the ritual of Shukke Tokudo Ordination. As is typical of our Sangha, the ceremony will be conducted simultaneously in three places around the world ... dropping all thought of here and there, now and then ... with the Preceptor (Jundo Cohen) in Japan, and our Ordainees in Austin, Texas and New York. (We also will welcome one additional new novice priest, Myozan of Dublin, Ireland, who was recently Ordained by Rev. Taigu).

    If you would like to witness the ceremony, and join in our celebration, the netcast will be seen at this link ...
