A Santa Fe, New Mexico Zen center and community with retreats, daily meditation, weekly Dharma talks on Buddhist teachings, programs and workshops. Two-year Certificated Buddhist Chaplaincy and Professional Training in Contemplative End of Life Care.
Join us tomorrow for a very special dharma talk with Rev. John Dear, "Remembering Hiroshima: Practicing Nonviolence -- Working for Peace." Wed. Aug. 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the Circle of the Way Temple. The visionary behind Campaign Nonviolence, Rev. Dear has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
We hope you can join us Friday, July 31, for a special "Blue Moon" Fusatsu at 5:30 pm in the Circle of the Way Temple here at Upaya.
Tomorrow's full moon is the second in the month of July. This “extra” full moon makes up for the discrepancy between our calendar and the lunar cycle. Owing to its rarity, the phrase, “once in a blue moon” was coined.
Fusatsu is a traditional Buddhist ceremony of atonement, purification, and renewing of the precepts.
