Jukai: Receiving the Precepts, April 2020

Every two years Rev. Munnich offers the Precepts to members of the Sangha during a ceremony in April of that year. In preparation for receiving the precepts participants must complete a rakusu (a small Buddha robe) which will be presented to them along with lineage papers during the April ceremony. The Rakusu Sewing retreat is usually scheduled in January, is mandatory for those taking the precepts in April, and offers instruction in the construction of a rakusu.

If you are interested in receiving the precepts and sewing a rakusu in contact Rev. Munnich before the next sewing retreat to state your intention.
