Tangaryo: Becoming a Formal Zen Student

Friday, February 15th, 2019
9am to 4pm

From the earliest days of Zen, those wishing to enter the way and study the teachings would sit outside the monastery for extended periods of time to demonstrate their commitment to practice. Tangaryo is a Japanese term meaning “to stay until the morning.”

Prior to sitting Tangaryo, prospective students must make an appointment with either Chodo or Koshin, requesting permission to become a formal student.

If you have been invited to sit Tangaryo, please contact Eishin Schapiro at eishin@zencare.org
