Sangha Study Groups

"Studying dharma texts by yourself is a very valuable thing to do. However, studying with others/sangha takes us far beyond our own subjectivity. You start to understand in a way that goes beyond concepts.”

Sokuzan

Guidelines for Participation

Thank you for joining SokukoJi's Footsteps Dharma Book Study!  

Please observe the following forms during your participation:
     - Use "Your Name + Bowing" as bookends to any questions or comments you have to share;
     - Mute your microphone when not speaking to cut down on background noise and static;
   - Be aware that you and your surroundings are an extension of the Monastery. Although not recommended by Sokuzan, if you need to lie down, eat, smoke, move about, or do anything else that may be distracting, please simply turn your video off during that time.

For more information, contact Chiezan (Tsukansu - Monastery Prior)
