Dear Hoen-ji Sangha,

Early this morning I received a telephone call from Fujin Formals, who conveyed the sad news of the passing of Ven. Eido T. Shimano while he was in Japan. She said that at Shogen-ji, in Gifu, he had delivered a teisho on Dogen’s Life-Death that she felt was the best teisho she had ever heard him give.

Some time ago, Eido Roshi had asked Sogen Yamakawa Roshi, abbot of Shogen-ji, to conduct his funeral services in Japan. There are still many details to be arranged. We will keep you informed once we know the arrangements for services there and at Dai Bosatsu Zendo.

With bows,

Shinge Roko Sherry Chayat
