La Otra Orilla-Other Shore

December 2012 in México



We shared a chilly weekend retreat at the beginning of the month up in the clear air of San Nicolás. See more pictures of this retreat here.

Katalankai Karate Dojo kindly requested a Zazen Workshop.

A public talk and event was also held at UAM public University in Mexico City. Students and their families gathered in deep appreciation for the depth in meaning that Japanese culture has brought into their lives.

Aqui está la traducción del Poema de Harada Roshi en honor de Rohatsu Sesshin 2012:


Dando a luz la Gran determinación,

De vivir desde nuestra Gracia otorgada por el Buda.

Cabezas de cobre, cuerpos de hierro,Rasurando liberan la raíz,

Apareciendo un renacer fresco sin final,

Devoción llana y pura en el camino,Para la liberación de toda la humanidad.

We are working on a translation button for all Roshi´s poems. Stay tuned!

Palms together, hearts and minds facing one same direction. Openly receiving the great New Year.

Happy 2013!!!

See you soon!!!
