and fruit. You may eat in the social hall or take home. For tickets call Rev. Kojima
or Rev. Toho at Zenshuji, (213) 624-8658.
ARIGATOO SOKAN RUMME
As a representative and member of Zenshuji, I would like to say ‘Arigatoo Sokan Rumme’
for the wonderful five years of dedication and service to Zenshuji! It has been
the most amazing and energizing period in the history of Zenshuji. You provided
us with new classes about Zen, growth of Zazenkai, new activities for the organization
of Zazenkai, class on precepts with sewing of the rakusu, Red Robe Service, completion
of the new Sutra Book, ordination of new minister, English Dharma Talks at the monthly/memorial
services, lecture circuit translator, President of LABTF, karaoke singer, compassionate
listener and many more activities and events.
There are no words one can say to express the emptiness we feel. We are happy for
the new adventure and goals that Bishop Rumme will experience in St. Louis, Missouri
and the happiness that Kathleen will bring into your life. We will always have
a special place for you as we meditate and chant the sutras.
