Taking Refuge in the Bodhisattva Way
each branch of coral holds up the moon
The path of Zen, of awakening, is a path we walk together and not alone. It is a way of being in the world leads us to a deeper connection with all its beings (both sentient and non-sentient). The Zen Buddhist precepts guide us first to our heart and then to a way of living that encourages awakening. It's not about being perfect, rather its more about a commitment to the way and to your essence.
This six week class is open to all LZC members who have at been practicing at the centre for at least a year. After completion of the class and assignments participants are welcome to attend the Refuge Ceremony and receive their Rakusu and become an ordained Zen student (monk).
