About This Event

Atonement Ceremony is a Buddhadharma training—Blessing from the teacher and a ritual of chanting, bowing, purification, and renewal of vows/direction. Traditionally practiced on the full moon, Fusatsu is one of the most beautiful and profound ceremonies in the Zen tradition. Together, we acknowledge our karmic entanglements and hindrances, at-one for the beginningless greed, anger, and ignorance—restoring harmony and happiness. Read the article "Ryaku Fusatsu—The Full Moon Ceremony" by Sheryl Gyonyo Hamilton (published in Mountain Wind Newsletter, October – December 2022).
