Dear Sangha & Friends,
Fall is rapidly approaching. In the coming weeks, we will have many opportunities to expand
our practice with the help of cooler temperatures and a more intensive schedule.
On Nov. 3 after potluck, we will have a meeting of the book club. We will continue discussing Mark Epstein's new book, The Trauma of Everyday Life, which has just been published. Plan on reading as much as you can.
Rohatsu this year will begin on start making room in your life so that you are able to attend this important annual retreat. Many of our away-members have already made a commitment to be here, and all of us need to help welcome them. Participate and celebrate the Enlightenment of the Buddha., and it will end on , Bodhi Day. Please
Finally, I want to mention that the end of the year is the traditional time for fund raising, and once again, we are going to be making our annual appeal. Membership dues and sesshin fees do not begin to cover the expenses required to run our little zendo, so we must ask everyone to contribute whatever they can to help us. It might interest you to know that the largest donor to Prajna Zendo has never spent one minute sitting here. You've never met him, and he isn't related to any of us. Yet he has promised to triple the combined total of all other donations. In other words, every dollar donated to Prajna Zendo actually means three dollars in the bank. So I'm pleading with everyone to give as much as they can. I can't think of any other place where your money will go as far.
