I heard about complex eating process in Soto. Have we something similar in Rinzaishu? Roshi please tell something about eating process for vegetarians cooking recipes dishes cutlery time frequency.

There is also a formal way of eating in the Rinzai tradition, with monks serving the food (Handaikan). At Sogenji this style is not practised, but a simpler version of this formal style, when everyone can eat at the same time. During the Handaikan version, the servers have to eat after everyone else, which is not practical for the situation at Sogenji.

Due to Roshi's busy schedule this year, we are currently not accepting any new questions at this time
