Class: Parables from the Lotus Sutra with Abbot Hozan
Thu, May 19, 2022
Abbot Hozan Alan Senauke will be teaching this year's Practice Period Class on the Parables the Lotus Sutra. The Lotus Sutra is one of the most important Mahayana Sutras. Its influence runs throughout Soto Zen's founder Dogen's teachings. The parables reveal the inherent possibility of awakening in each of us.
The class will be held on Thursdays evenings May 12, 19, 26 and June 2 from 7:15 til 8:45 pm. This class will be held on zoom, and subsequently will be available on the website under “lectures.”
PDFs of excerpts will be available to class participants. Sign up for the class as part of the practice period sign up. If you are not participating in the practice period but will be attending the class, please notify the Class Coordinator, Ryushin Andrea Thach at firstname.lastname@example.org.
