Harada Roshi


< Back to Question and Answer

Dear Harada Roshi I am a practicing Catholic and also practice zazen in the Rinzai tradition. I have felt a strong desire to manifest both Christianity and Buddhist practice in my life. I would like to work towards receiving Jukai. How does one believe in Christ and follow the the Buddha?


Whether you can believe or not, that is up to you. It is possible to believe in Christ and in the Buddha. Receiving Jukai is about becoming a direct student of the Buddha. If you can say, that you trust in the Buddha for two years, then you can receive Jukai.



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