Jukai: Receiving the Precepts

Every two years, Great Treen Temple offers an opportunity to receive the Precepts for anyone interested. In preparation for the ceremony, participants are required to complete a small Buddha robe (rakusu), which is presented to them during a Precepts ceremony (Jukai).

 

Requirements for Receiving the Precepts are:

  • Participate in full 5 day Sewing Retreat;

  • Complete sewing of a small buddha robe (rakusu);

  • Attend Precepts Sesshin;

  • Participate in Precepts ceremony at the end of Precepts Sesshin.

If you are interested in receiving the precepts and sewing a Rakusu contact teijo@greattreetemple.org before the next sewing retreat to state your intention.

If you need financial assistance to attend a sesshin or practice event, please email info@greattreetemple.org. We won't turn anyone away for lack of funds, but we appreciate donations to help us keep offering these programs to everyone.
