Jukai - Ceremony " Taking refuge + receiving the precepts " - July 2020

In the life of a Zen practitioner, the ceremony of Jukai is a crucial step. It consists in receiving the precepts (Kai) of the Bodhisattva and, by doing so, of taking refuge in the three treasures: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.

Important! These teachings on the theme of "Jukai" are open to all, even to people who have already done the ceremony or wish to do so later.

Informations about Jukai's ceremonies in year 2020

Different rituals are associated with this ceremony, making the whole one particularly strong moment:

  • writing a letter to master Wang-Genh to express one’s wish to receive the precepts and describing one’s path.
  • having an individual conversation with the Jukai Master
  • symbolically cutting the first lock of hair during the ceremony
  • receiving a rakusu and a name of ordination
  • and for those who sew, spending long hours, concentrated in the sewing room with the senior monks and nuns, such as Anette Seigyo Beck, the sewing instructor.





Two days of teaching devoted to the precepts will precede the sesshin during which the various ceremonies will take place.


For whom?

This ceremony is opened to all who aspire to receive the sixteen precepts of the Bodhisattva.

If you haven’t hand-sewn the rakusu, you will be able to get it at the temple (100 euros).

IMPORTANT: If you have already done the Jukai ceremony or if you wish to do it later, it is quite possible to come and attend the teachings.
