Rakusu Sewing begins

Three sangha members have asked to make the commitment of becoming formal students at Shao Shan Temple: Max, Susan and Sharon.  They have recently begun the process of sewing rakusus for the Jukai ceremony on July 2nd, 2017.  The sewing process is a meditation practice with a prayer in each stitch ("Namu Kie Butsu").

Special thanks to our sewing teachers: Donna O'Malley and Judy Harden and also joining this year as a sewing-teacher-in-training is Kathleen Daye.
