"BODHISATTVA MONKS IN JAPANESE TRADITION"
The hour will include a short participatory liturgy, followed by an explanation of Tendai's all-encompasing vision dating from 800AD. Within this broad umbrella, California Tendai Monastery operates a more specialized temple where bodhisattva monks train on Cobb Mountain (Lake/Sonoma County) in the fire ritual called goma, the mountain-encircling asceticism called kaihogyo, and extensive recitation of sutras and mantras. Questions at the end.
