May Zazenkai 2013

The Rinzai-ji May Zazenkai was held on Sunday, May 5th. 18 students participated. Gento Osho led the group in Zazen and Kinhin, as well as giving a dharma talk and Q&A. The generous support of the Mt Baldy staff made for a crisp and smooth day of practice. Lucy the Rinzai-ji cat returned to the practice schedule, sitting in the zendo and overseeing the courtyard during Kinhin. The weather was overcast and cool in the morning, while sunny and mild in the afternoon. After the zazen-kai, there was a gathering in the tea room for homemade brownies and coffee.
