Welcome to November. This is Founders' Month, celebrating the life of Matsuoka-roshi and the Tenth Anniversary of the Founding of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha and the Silent Thunder Order. We have much going -on and I encourage you to invite friends to experience how we share the Dharma--so bring a friend or ten to Zen with you to our November activities
Remember also, your financial support is important. You may donate through PayPal: falmouthsotozensangha.net
And, in addition I am asking those who can to make an above and beyond donation of $50 to the Silent Thunder Order Founders Month Fund. Those who do so will receive a copy of Hojo Taiun-Elliston-roshi's new book, The Original Frontier, in the very first release shipment in 2021. This book will inform my teachings beginning in February, 2021, as we review a chapter a month...
