Honoring the Ancestors Sesshin
An explosive shout cracks the great empty sky.
Immediately clear self-understanding.
Swallow up buddhas and ancestors of the past.
Without following others, realize complete penetration.

During this sesshin we will remember and taste the lives and teachings of those who have directly influenced the dharma at Great Vow Monastery including Maezumi Roshi, Philip Kapleau Roshi, Shodo Harada Roshi, and Chozen Roshi.
