Pilgrimage to Eihei-ji for the 750th Anniversary of Dogen Zenjis Entering Nirvana
~ Tracing Steps of Dogen Zenji and Keizan Zenji ~
is the year of the 750th Anniversary of Dogen Zenjis Entering Nirvana.
At Eihei-ji, the great memorial service has been held every 50 years since
the 16th century. Thousands of people will visit Eihei-ji from all over
Japan as well as from many countries outside Japan to show their reverence
and gratitude to Dogen Zenji.
The Soto Zen Administrative Office and Soto Zen Education Center of North America have planed of group tour to Eihei-ji. We would like to invite you to visit Eihei-ji in the deep mountain in early autumn to reflect on Dogen Zenjis vow to establish the monastery and his teaching of, "Yearning for the ancient way."
We will also visit the main sites of Dogen Zenji and Keizan Zenji in Kyoto, Fukui, and Ishikawa Prefecture. We believe this will be a very rare opportunity to study the history of the Soto Zen tradition by actually visiting the important places of our founders. Please see the itinerary below.
