In this two-class series, we will explore jukai – receiving the Zen Bodhisattva Precepts and vowing to live an awakened life. We will pay attention to our lineage and ancestors, with special attention to ZCLA’s founders, founding family and our teachers’ teachers. We will also look at the practices of Gassho and bowing, and the Verse of the Kesa. Finally, we will consider the requirements to receive jukai, the rakusu, and the ceremony itself.
If you wish to receive jukai, this is a required class, but our exploration will encompass more than the ceremony, and everyone is welcome to join us. The pre-requisite is to have taken the precept class at some point before this.
