Sangha is the community of people practicing the Dharma (Way) of Shakyamuni Buddha.
The Silent Thunder Order is a network of a dozen such sanghas under the leadership of Taiun Elliston-roshi. He is the Abbot or Hojo of the Order.
Because we in the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha (FSZS) are a member of this network of sanghas, we are able to have wonderful speakers from other areas join us in our services. This Tuesday night, Fusatsu Apriel Jessup-Searcy, who has been to several of our services, will lead our Dharma discussion.
