Celebrating the enlightenment of Buddha Shakyamuni


Where: Zendō in the Fairmount UCC Education Bldg

Friday and Saturday, December 8-9

Zen monasteries and centers mark​ the morning of December 8, which this year is a Friday​, as the moment when Buddha Shakyamuni attained the way​.

To honor Buddha’s awakening, we will open the zendo for meditation on Friday evening​ ​until Saturday morning, December 9, at sunrise. ​We are doing this on Friday night rather than Thursday​ night​ because of work schedules.

Friday, Dec 8, 7pm–9pm
Chanting, meditation, and kinhin

Friday, Dec 8, 9pm–midnight
Meditation and voluntary​ (unannounced)​ kinhin

Saturday, Dec 9, midnight-7:33am (sunrise)
Meditation and voluntary​ (unannounced)​ kinhin

You may come​ or sit​ for all or just a portion of this time. Until 9pm Friday, we’ll check the door on the half hour​ for late comers (we keep the door locked for security reasons when we are in the zendo). ​After 9pm someone will check​ on the hour.​ From 9pm on we will ring a chime to mark the hour.

We will have hot tea available in the anteroom.​

Zendō at the Fairmount UCC Education Bldg, Wichita KS, United States
