One of our dear and beloved Sangha members and former Hartford Street residents, Nicholas will have a Jukai (lay initiation) ceremony immediately following the Saturday morning Dharma talk and Saturday program. This public ceremony is to celebrate and formally mark a practitioner receiving the sixteen Bodhisattva precepts (3 refuges, 3 pure precepts, 10 essential precepts) and vowing to work to live their life in accordance with these precepts. Please join us for this wonderful event to celebrate Nicholas’ vows, renew our own and congratulate Nicholas and all on the Soto Zen path!
