Jukai - Bodhisattva Vows - July 2, 2017

Shao Shan Temple
Sunday, July 2, 2017

This year Susan Calza, Sharon Dube and Max Schlueter made their commitments to become formal students of Shao Shan Temple.  They received the 16 precepts, Buddhist names and have become Taihaku’s students.

Hollie Hurewitz-Herbert, Jamey Plouffe, Alex Sredni, Heather Kralik, and Monica DiGiovanni received the first five Bodhisattva precepts - making their commitment to a Buddhist way of life.

This ceremony was an occasion for the families and friends of those receiving the precepts and Sangha members to join together in support of the commitment that Susan, Sharon, Max, Hollie, Jamey, Alex, Heather and Monica are entering.  

Thank you to everyone who joined together with us in a spirit of renewal of your commitments and intentions which support a life beneficial for all.
