Friday Evening Bodhisattva Precepts Recitation, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Tallahassee Chan Center will host a monthly ceremony on the third Friday of each month, beginning November 17, 2023 from 6:30-8pm.
For those who have formally taken the Bodhisattva Precepts, please wear your robe and sash; if you come in person, bring the robe and sash to the Center in a pouch and then put it on just before entering the Chan Hall. If you participate from home, create a space for your practice and put on the robe and sash just before “entering” for the zoom gathering. If you would like to come before 6:30 to do repentance prostrations, you are welcome to do so. The ceremony will start at 6:30, and each Bodhisattva will have an opportunity to share what has come up in the past month. After 7pm, the general public can join. Please see the schedule below.
