Rohatsu 2012

A rather cold Rohatsu, temperatures around 0 degree, snow falls and icy winds, were celebrated this morning by the ceremony in honor of the Buddha`s enlightenment.

The poem given by the Roshi:


Bringing forth the Great determination
for living from Grace given by the Buddha
Copper heads, iron bodies
Shaving free the root
Coming forth unendingly
freshly reborn - straightforward devotion
the path for the liberation of all humanity
