Teisho during the Fusatsu Ceremony on the final evening of Rohatsu Sesshin
Fusatsu Ceremony gives us an opportunity to renew our bodhisattva vows and to atone for any pain and suffering we may have intentionally, inadvertently, or indirectly caused. This is the teisho, on aspects of the Buddhist precepts, that Shugen Roshi offered in the midst of the ceremony.
