Please welcome a new black-robe priest into the Silent Thunder Order. Unshin Sangaku Dan Joslyn, practice leader of the Falmouth Soto Zen Sangha in Falmouth, MA, received Shukke Tokudo (novice priest ordination) on Sunday, July 20 at the Atlanta Soto Zen Center.

Zen Master Baoji said "Virtuous practitioners of Zen, studying the way in our school is like the earth holding mountains without knowing how steep they are, or a stone containing a jewel without knowing how flawless it is.  One who practices like this is called a home leaver."{jcomments on}
