Dear Sangha Members,

The 49-Day memorial service for Eido Roshi will be held at Dai Bosatsu Zendo on April 8, during Holy Days Sesshin. We hope many of you can attend this sesshin in Eido Roshi’s honor. For those who cannot, there will also be a 49-Day service at New York Zendo on April 8th. I have invited Soryu Zenrin Richard Lewis Roshi to officiate, since I will be conducting the service at DBZ. Details will be forthcoming.

Eido Roshi’s funeral ceremony will take place at Dai Bosatsu Zendo on Tuesday, April 24, at noon.  We have invited Sogen Yamakawa Roshi of Shogen-ji temple in Gifu to conduct the funeral. Eido Roshi and Yamakawa Roshi had a long and deep Dharma friendship, and Eido Roshi’s last teisho was given at Shogen-ji junior college a few days before he passed away. 

Please email or call 845-439-4566 if you wish to attend. Round-trip transportation may be available from New York Zendo.
