Kobun Chino Otogawa Roshi founded and helped establish Jikoji and related zen centers between 1970 and his death in 2002. We will honor Kobun’s memory July 30-31, beginning at 9 am Saturday morning sittings. On Saturday afternoon we will read in turn from “Kobun’s Talks on the Heart Sutra” to share his teaching. A few of us will remember listening to Kobun’s slow-spoken, meditative voice, while each person makes his words their own. On Sunday, after the usual two sittings, service, and a brief introduction by Angie Boissevain, we will form a procession to the memorial site and offer incense while chanting the Daihi Shin Dhahrani. A social lunch will follow. Buffet lunch will be served on Saturday and Sunday. Jikoji will be open Sunday afternoon for sitting in the zendo, and/or enjoying the nearby trails ."
