Jukai: Receiving the Precepts, April 8, 2018 at 3:00 pm
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 offers instruction in the contruction of a rakusu as well as Rev. Munnich’s teachings on the precepts. Attending the rakusu sewinng retreat in February is a prerequisite for participating in jukai/
