    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,

    Dokan

      Thanks Taigu. Great. A naked clergy? How things could have been otherwise!
      Gassho, with thanks for this work of scholarship.

        Thank you, Taigu.

        It's great study material for us newbies at sewing the kesa.

          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.
          To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
