Keeping it short and sweet this week.

Tonight at 7pm, I’ll be talking about my favorite part of the chant book: Dogen’s Vow.Nothing like hearing a fanatic rave about his commitments to stir up the blood, you know?

 Saturday at 7am: Three Sits and then, Dogen’s Vow in place of the Heart Sutra. Why? First because it’s good. Second because variety is the spice of life. And Third, three people are doing initiation into the Sangha this Sunday in Tullahoma! Vows are just the thing for the occasion!

Congrats to the Zen Group of Tullahoma! Doug, you are the *just* pseudo-cult leader that I aspire to be.

We are very proud of y’all.
