Rohatsu: Zoom Sitting Buddha

Friday from 6:30 PM/ET through Saturday 6:30 AM/ET members of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha will sit in Zazen. We when sitting thus become Buddha as such. This is an invitation for a unique Zoom experience. You can come and go via Zoom as you like over this time frame. This is called Rohatsu and is celebration of Buddha's awakening by sitting Buddha...

Beginning at 6:30 PM there will be instructions for the twelve hours event. Then at 6:30 AM Saturday we will explore the Buddha's first sermon, or the First Turning of the Dharma Wheel, as part of our Dharma discussion.

In preparing for this Zoom event here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. Find a place that is not too hot or cold to sit. We usually face a wall.

  2. Sit in a chair or on a cushion but not a bed.
