On August 26, 2017, a full house of members and friends gathered to celebrate the miraculous occasion of our 20th Anniversary. Services, including memorials for departed priests and honorary founder Maezumi Roshi, were followed by informal remembrances by long-time students. Nyogen Roshi’s wholehearted teisho paid tribute to our rare lineage and the tradition we embody as a Soto temple training in the vibrant Rinzai style. Over a generous buffet lunch, we welcomed honored guests including original members Greg Marquez and Alison Misho Young, and enjoyed the splendors of the garden, the harmony of sangha, and the sanctuary that is this Buddha Dharma.
