Rôhatsu sesshin

A silent sesshin in homage of Buddha’s awakening.

Every year, in each temple, the nuns and monks commemorate Buddha’s awakening, reliving his experience, sat in zazen.
The Rohatsu Sesshin unfolds in silence, facing oneself.
The 30 min zazen follow one another and alternate with kin-hin.
