    Ryaku Fusatsu - BLUE MOON Recommitment Ceremony - Wednesday, August 30, 2023

    Hello, dear sangha

    On Wednesday, August 30th, on the day of the full ("Blue/Super") moon, we get together again to be reminded of the Precepts, to recommit to them and to atone for past misdeeds, as it has been the custom since the time of Shakyamuni Buddha, within the Sangha. This ceremony in Soto Zen is called Ryaku Fusatsu.


    The history of the monthly full moon ceremony is explained HERE

    To find your local time, please check the Treeleaf calendar, which can be found HERE

    The Ryaku Fusatsu ceremony will be held in the Meeting Room, which can be found HERE

    You can also join our livestream if you do not wish to be on camera or participate at a later time, whenever it is better for you, with the recording, which you will find here:


    Please join in for the Treeleaf Ryaku Fusatsu Precepts Recommitment Ceremony. The history of the ceremony is detailed here https://www.treeleaf.org/forums/sh...


    The ceremony is easy to follow along with, so please download the booklet for it HERE


    If you wish to participate, you'll also need a vessel with water and a leaf, or something you can sprinkle yourself with when the moment arrives.

    We hope you can join us! All are welcome to attend or participate, having received the Precepts or not. We look forward to seeing you there!

    I'm still just starting to learn. I'm not a teacher. Please don't take anything I say too seriously. I already take myself too seriously!

      Any reason that the thread is locked??

      I am reminded of this ... I think the lyrics describe Tonglen!

        It shouldn't be locked.

                Being a novice priest doesn't mean my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

                  Thank you for allowing me to follow the last ceremonies, despite not having done Jukai. I assume is fine since I'm taking the precepts now in the future

                    Live gently now, do your best to abide by the Precepts today, avoiding harm to self and others (not two, by the way).

                    The Jukai merely Celebrates our living so.
