Harada Roshi


There is a most wonderful opportunity at Sogenji that sangha members are allowed to spend a week in solitary retreat, while still able to come down the mountain for sanzens with the Roshi. There are two places available for sitting, the pagoda and the hermitage. The hermitage was build by the sangha, all materials carried up the mountain. It is a spacious building with windows opening in all four direction. Since it is off track, no mountain walkers come by as well. During Osesshin the whole sangha gathers of course in the monastery, but starting from the night after Osesshin usually the so called Dokusesshin (sesshin alone) is booked out. Below some pictures of the hermitage.
