Thread: Special Zazenkai with Daiho Hilbert and Jundo "Roshi" Ceremony

    Special Zazenkai with Daiho Hilbert and Jundo "Roshi" Ceremony

    Hi All,

    We will be having a co-Treeleaf and Clear Mind Zendo Zazenkai today, from 10am Mountain time US until noon. Please join us if you can ...

    And I am content to say that Daiho Hilbert Roshi will be gifting me with a "Roshi" Ceremony, bestowing the roll of "Roshi" (Old Teacher) on me. I would have refused from just about anyone else, but it means much to me coming from him.



    Gassho, Jundo

    An Honor to share the Transmission of Light with you Roshi Jundo. It was good to once again sit with Daiho and Shukke.

    Safe Travels Jundo, Leon and Jishin. It was my honor to share a few days with all of you. And Anna very much enjoyed your company and knowledge, it was her gift to.

    Daiho Roshi, Jundo Roshi and all others; Thank you so much for allowing us to join you to witness this auspicious moment in the history of our two Sanghas with this beautiful ceremony which is reminiscent of such others. Thank you Diaho for bestowing this honor on our beloved teacher and doing it in such a manner that we could share. May we all be free of entanglements and may our thoughts and meditations contribute to the Harmony of the Universe

    Jundo Roshi,

    We were unable to watch the ceremony because of lack of data minutes. In two days, I will have that privilege to witness this beautiful celebration. Many deep bows, Jundo Roshi. Safe journey to you and Leon back to Japan. You are in our hearts.

    Thank you all. It was very moving. Very lovely people in their Sangha. I'm just Jundo.

    Tonight, I am in Lubbock Texas at Jishin's house, where we had to go because of the terrible Hurricane. I was unable to visit Lorax in Marfa and Meishin in Austin as planned. Tomorrow, we drive directly to Dallas, where Leon and I will spend a day before heading home.

    Ansan, sorry for using up all your data!

    Just Jundo,

    I would have given up all my data to have had the privilege of your visit. Besides, I, myself, used much of that data to sit with you and the Sangha. Data out in here in Boonyville is skimpy at best. But at least, I have a lifeline to you & TreeLeaf for which I am grateful. Many many many (more than) many deep bows for your kindness.

    Thank you again, everyone, for the kind words.

    "Roshi" is Chinese-Japanese Zen lingo for "old Teacher." 老師.

    As to "Teacher", I suppose that is true, but rather care for another traditional Buddhist term: "Friend Along the Way" or "Good Wise Friend" (Zenchishiki, 善知識, Sanskrit kalyanamitra). A a friend and guide along the Path with some helpful pointers and encouragement and a bit of experience to pass on.

    And "Old" is just the truth as the years pass.

    Wise Old Teacher, perhaps Jundo Roshi ? Certainly that in my experience over the last year here at Treeleaf but maybe not so old. Been catching up with New Mex Zazenkai but will now watch this on demand and sit with you beyond place and time.

    Deep bows to you and to Daiho Roshi for bestowing this "title" on you. Truly deserved IMHO

    Just sat, very moving and wonderfully conducted and received. So proud to be a member of this Sangha (is that allowed ?).
    Kotei your image truly captures the spirit of our Sangha, 108 deep bows.
