Samu – June 17 at Annandale Zendo
This is a wonderful opportunity to extend your practice into your daily life. Samu is an ancient way of giving something valuable back to the sangha through the generosity of your labour. Explore the joy of gardening, building maintenance, cleaning and mending at our city zendo. Our founding teacher, Robert Aitken, said that Zen without samu is a cult. So share with other members this most important part of your Zen journey by coming along to offer your time and skills, while having a great time with your sangha friends.
Gillian Coote, roshi will give a dharma talk in the morning before we commence our jobs. Feel free to come for as long as you can. Please bring some vegetarian food to share for lunch.
