Retreat in Review

I am delighted to report that our retreat this weekend on the Varieties of Practice in Tendai Buddhism was a fine success: we had a very full room, a sense of commitment and purpose, three sangha members taking refuge, and a delightful time getting to know the teachings and each other better.

We are grateful to Monshin and Shumon Naamon from the Tendai Buddhist Institute for coming down and sharing the teachings with us. And speaking personally, I am deeply grateful to the entire group for all their efforts, material support, and beneficial practices to make this event possible. I am also grateful to Hae In Ernest Lissabet for founding and nurturing this sangha. May all beings share in the merit.

I look forward to more events like this in the future, and to increased growth and development of the group.
