    Oryoki interest

    Hello lovely people!
    Is Oryoki no longer a regular event?
    I would have loved to find out more about it!

    Cheers,
    Fiona

    Hi, thanks so much! Unfortunately in my time zone that would make it a meal commencing at midnight, when I have to go to work in the morning. It would be great to get a chance one day, if anybody is happy to have Oryoki a tad earlier or later #prettypleeeeease

    Is there a video where I could see how it is done with food, when nobody is serving? Jundo's video was great, but when we do a life session we wouldn't have a person serving the food or bringing water to wash the bowls etc...
    Can I make my own little set of bowls and utensils, using tea towels etc? Or do I order a set of bowls somewhere maybe?

    Gassho,

    Hello Fiona,

    Yes of course, you can make your own bowls and there is no need to spend money on them. Jundo actually recommends just putting together a simple set that works for you. =)

    As for videos, there are a lot of great videos that Shugen has done when we got together for Oryoki, but here is one with Jundo during Rohatsu 2015 where there is food.

    Hope this helps. =)

    Somewhere there were instructions for a make-it-yourself set.... Perhaps in the Rohatsu instructions? I used 3 household bowls that fit into each other, a dishcloth, a pillowcase, a linen napkin, a spoon and a set of chopsticks, and a mini bowl-scraper. For Rohatsu, I set food and drink (such as a big bowl of a salad or a rice dish or a big container of yogurt, or a stack of bread squares) on a nearby folding snack table and served myself from each one in turn. I had hot cinnamon spiced tea in a thermos to clean the bowls.

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    I think the Upaya instructions there are a little different from the way we do it here. I suggest to follow Shugen's lead on this.

    Hello Fiona,

    If you read this thread from start to finish it should answer most of your questions:

    http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showt...ractice-Circle

    The first part of this thread shows how to put everything together and gives measurements for some of the more "unusual" components:
