Dear Friends:


Many thanks to those who came to the Garden Work Day at Heart of Wisdom.  Twelve people weeded, moved plants, and dug the beginning of our rain garden.  It looks great.










A warm thank you to our Teachers Chozen and Hogen for the donation of a new dishwasher at Heart of Wisdom Zen Temple.  

   We can now rest assured that our dishwashing process is safe and sanitary



The buildings and the grounds protect the Dharma

And bring peace to all.

The sangha in the ten directions will increase

In wisdom and compassion.

How this all comes to us

Is a gift we should not miss.

One last note....Kojun will be giving a class at Heart of Wisdom on Sundays
