Pravarana Ceremony (confession and purification)

Reserved for Practice Period participants.

If you have been participating in our Practice Period, please join us online via Zoom for Pravarana, a ceremony of confession and purification.

Pravarana, traditionally performed at the end of Practice Period, is a ceremony in which everyone confesses their shortcomings during Practice Period and begs forgiveness. It is mentioned in Dogen’s fascicle on Ango and at the opening of the Surangama Sutra.

Practice Period participants will receive an invitation a few days before the ceremony with instructions and the text of the ceremony.

This ceremony takes place after Morning Zazen on the same Zoom link.

For Zoom Access

Please log on early and remain on mute to help create the space for the ceremony.
