Foundational Buddhist Teachings
Studying ahead will definitely deepen your experience of this series, but it isn’t necessary. The links below are to episodes of Domyo’s Zen Studies Podcast, which you can listen to or read.
Precept Study Classes
Every year we study the Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts. Even those of us who have been committed to the precepts for a long time find it useful to explore them regularly. Precept study classes will be led by senior students who have taken Jukai.
Classes will be based on various sources, but if you would like to read a book on the precepts as you take this class series, click here for four recommendations. (Domyo’s personal favorite is Waking Up to What You Do.)
If you are thinking of receiving the precepts and formally becoming a Zen Buddhist at our Jukai Ceremony this year (May 17th), please speak to Domyo about your intention, and plan to attend all of these classes (or plan to listen to the audio if you can’t attend).
