Gotan-E Online Sesshin - 10 - 13 April

This three-and-a-half day sesshin is dedicated to the anniversary of Shakyamuni Buddha's birth on April 8. This year, taking into account the exceptional circumstances due to the general confinement, the schedule will be that of a normal sesshin in order to allow as many people as possible to take part, On-Line. At the end of the sesshin, on Monday, April 13 at 11 a.m., there will be a JUKAI ceremony - transmission of the bodhisattva's precepts - for four people who are residents of the monastery during the period of confinement. This will be an opportunity for all those who wish to refresh their commitment to the Buddha's path.
In order to put you fully in the spirit of the sesshin, you are asked to register formally. You will then receive all the practical information and the procedure to follow.
