Announcement 11/22/12

Recently the Board of Directors of Rinzai-ji has become aware of allegations posted on websites of sexual misconduct by Joshu Sasaki Roshi, the Abbott of Rinzai-ji. The Board takes allegations of inappropriateness regarding any Rinzai-ji teacher’s behavior very seriously. The Board is therefore conferring this weekend to create a plan to address this issue. We will move as quickly as possible and request your patience over the next few days as we develop a process to address these concerns.
