Every September during Osesshin Roshi honors the people who have passed at Enso House, the hospice next door to Tahoma with a ceremony, offering sweets and incense. Here is his poem from this ceremony Sept 18, 2016. So far over 76 people have passed away at Enso House with Dr. Ann Cutcher and many Sogenji training people who have carefully cared for dying guests.
The Autumn light sparkles, filling the entire universe;
The Great Earth- universally revealed, the other shore!
Sacred and Mundane play together in Enso's dream.
Our minds wide open, free, the departed are honored.
