Our New Buddha

Dear Friends,

Let’s offer heartfelt congratulations to our dear sangha member, Krishna, who received Jukai from Enkyo Roshi during Summer Ango. Her new dharma name is  An Yō (Peaceful Nourishing). An Yō studied and received precepts with a group with five others, to whom we also send huge congratulations:  Katie Crum, Kei Kō (Dazzling Respect, Force); Patrick Higgiston, Tō Nen (Clear Mind-Moment); Sal Randolph, Gesshō (Moonlight); Paul Romaine, Kan Dō (Generous Guide); and Mark Younger,  Tai Yō (The Body Nourished).
