Rev. Sekkei Harada (1926-2020) was one of the great Zen masters of our time. He was the abbot of Hosshinji Monastery in Fukui, Japan for more than forty years. This book is based on a collection of his teachings about a ten-verse poem by Tong’an Changcha.

This study group will be led by Rev. Daigaku Rummé. Ordained by Harada Sekkei Roshi in 1978, Rummé translated this text from Japanese into English with the help of Heiko Narrog. Rev. Rummé is the resident priest and teacher of Confluence Zen Center STL.

The study group will start 05 May and will continue every Thursday and the last class will be on 02 June.

Suggested Donation: $40 for the series ($20 for members). This book can be purchased from Daigaku for $18.
