Join us for the robust ceremony of Hossenshiki, in which head Student Anyu Debra Savelle will ascend the teaching seat and engage the Buddha Eye Temple community in ritual Dharma Combat. This is an opportunity to investigate, examine, and question the Head Student’s understanding of the Dharma, as well as celebrate their dedication and ongoing exploration of practice and teaching. For this ceremony, Anyu and the community will discuss a section of “The Verses of Faith Mind,” which is attributed to the 3rd Ancestor, Kanchi Sōsan.
