Bodhi Day in Szczecin 2019


Yesterday was the commemoration of  the day that the historical Buddha Siddhartha Gautama experienced enlightenment, after years of extreme ascetic practices He resolved to sit under a peepal tree, also known as a Bodhi tree and simply contiuned His practice. Traditions agree that as the morning star rose in the sky in the early morning, seeing it and becoming one with it He exclaimed : "How wondrous! All sentient beings are fully endowed with the qualities of the Tathagata's wisdom, but because of clinging to false thoughts, thay cannot realize them".

Due to that day, we had a simple cremony of  reciting TEIDAI DENPO BUSSO NO MYOGO with eko, zazen, Roshi's commentary on Shōnen Sōzoku , the statue of the Buddha on the altar, sweets, tea, incese offering , and sharing cup of tea with sweets after. We continued next mornig with full choka and zazen.
