Gate of Sweet Nectar Workshop
THROUGH THE GATE OF SWEET NECTAR: Learning the Heart Liturgy of Feeding the Hungry Spirits
Saturday, April 25 & Sunday, April 26, 2015
Led by Roshi Bernie Glassman and Roshi Egyoku Nakao
This weekend program explores the power of this rare and beautiful liturgy that invites all suffering spirits into the mandala of our practice. The ceremony invites in all forms of hunger and offers the meal of the Five Buddha Wisdoms as we open ourselves to the reality of suffering and our liberation from it.
In this workshop, we will learn the liturgy, its history and meaning, and enact it. As this is the core liturgy of the Zen Peacemaker Order (ZPO), priority for the training will be for Zen Peacemaker Order members. To receive this priority, all ZPO members are requested to register by Sunday, April 5.
