Zen River Inauguration

Dear Fellow Practitioners,

On the weekend of May 5th 2012, I visited Zen River in Holland for the inauguration of their new Zendo and Hondo and the Eye Opening of a new Manjushri statue.

The ceremonies were attended by two abbots from China (one from the monastery where Dogen trained on his visit to China!) and two Japanese Zen masters. It was a beautiful, colourful affair with lots of traditional ritual as well as festive activities.

Kind regards, Keizan Sensei
