Shuso Hondo Dave Rutschman answered the participants’ questions during the Dharma Inquiry Ceremony. It was a wonderful, warm, inspiring ceremonial conclusion to the year-long Practice Period of Daily Life. Thank you to all who attended the ceremony, participated in the practice period, and kept the Houston Zen Center vitally active during this year of practice.
This ceremony marks an important rite of passage in the training of a Zen priest and senior Zen practitioner. Congratulations to Rev. Hondo Dave Rutschman, to the assistant (benji) Koun Matt Brownlie, and to everyone.
