Jusen’s Garden Dedication
One of the visions for Tahoma Zen Monastery is that it will have a columbarium so that sangha members as well as the worldwide sangha who are so interested can be interned on the Monastery grounds. The columbarium will be surrounded by a garden with aspects of both the Pacific Northwest and Japan. This garden is the first phase of the project and work began on it in earnest this summer thanks, to the generous contributions of long time sangha member Jusen Bland. There has been both professional workers involved in clearing and grading the land and much sangha labor during the September 2019 Training month preparing the site for a dedication ceremony. On September 17th we held a dedication and blessing of the garden.
