    Wow what an excellent find!

    Silk, purple robes, gold embroidery...but amazingly we've returned the basics.

    Taigu, sincerely, thank you for bringing this practice to Treeleaf.

    Deep bows,

    Thank you, Taigu.

    It's great study material for us newbies at sewing the kesa.
    Please remember I am only a priest in training. I could be wrong in everything I say. Slap me if needed.

    Rev. Taigu,

    Thank you for this interesting article. I have always wondered how the robes of the Mahayana lineages evolved from those of the earlier orders.
