We are soliciting donations for the silent auction. Times are tight for many of
us but there are several ways to help. Have some wine, beer or empty gift baskets
left over from the holidays? A gift card that you can part with? Have a friend
that is is a hair stylist? Just about anything can become a silent auction item.
Any gesture big or small is greatly appreciated. Contributions are tax deductible.
Here are just a few ideas to get you started:
* Tickets to movies, concerts, sporting events, plays, museums and theme parks
* Framed photography or artwork
* Hand-made arts and crafts
* Produce, plants, yard and garden items
* Collectible antiques
* Gift certificates to restaurants, retail stores, hair salons, golf courses and
car washes, etc.
* A weekend at a timeshare or other vacation package
* Themed Gift baskets such as Movie gifts(DVD, movie tickets, popcorn, candy, etc.)
Wine gifts(bottles of wine, cheese, crackers, etc.), Cooking gifts(cook books, cooking
ingredients, cooking utensils/equipment)
With the exception of collectible antiques, we request donations of new items for
the silent auction please!
Please use the form below for your donations.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact the temple.
Thank you in advance for you support!
SOTO ZEN NORTH AMERICA VIDEOS
Soto Zen Shumucho (administrative offices) made videos to show our activities in
North America. The first one will show you the current stream of Soto Zen in North
America, how the Zen is synchronizing in the daily life of the people who live there.
In the second one, almost 100 year-history in North America can be seen including
Zenshuji. Soto Zen Buddhism was originally begun for Japanese immigrants. But now,
there are so many Zen centers for the practitioners in North America.
