A year ago, on the 11th of March at 11 am, an earthquake and tsunami struck the North Eastern part of Japan. 28000 people lost their lives and in their remembrance this morning after Choka the Bosatsu Gangyo Mon, Torei Zenji´s Bodhisattva Vow was read. Today even though it is the sixth day of Osesshin, 20 members of the sangha are going on Takuhatsu rounds in Omotecho, while the others lead the Sunday zazenkai. The money from this Takuhatsu will again be sent to a closely affiliated temple in the affected area.
