Thread: Ordination of Simon Chishou Steadman

    Ordination of Simon Chishou Steadman

    Dear all

    I just wanted to share the news that Simon Chishou Steadman, who took Jukai here in January 2018, was ordained last week by friend of the sangha and dharma descendant of Taigu Turlur, Taikyo Morgan.

    He takes on the name Jakushin becoming Jakushin Chishou.

    Here is a picture of him looking serene after the ordination in the south of France:

    I asked if he wanted to post himself but he returns to work today in his day job of being a paramedic (or ambulance man as he prefers) so was happy for me to do so.

    That is great. Congratulations Chishou! I remember he posted about his plan to become ordained back in 2018.

    Interesting I don't see an image or a link in Chrome. If I look at the page source I find this link however.

    https://postimg.cc/xXm7M8s3

    Just checked and it shows up as a broken link for me in Firefox.

    Anyway, he looks great.

    Editing to add I found a way to link the image directly

    Please don't take anything I say as anything more than just a normal person's thoughts on the topic. I'm just stumbling through life trying to be helpful, but really don't know much.

    All that is good for Simon Chisou (Jakushin) Steasman. May he serve long and with wisdom.

    Hello one and all,

    Thank you all for your kind words, I'm sorry for taking so ling to get back to you all, life does like t get in the way of life. It has been an interesting journey which began again in Marseille. It was hot, there were plenty of mosquitoes and I wish I'd bad attention more in my school French lessons.

    Best wishes to you, your family and your practice.

    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).
