BPF Executive Director Ordained

September 23, 2008

from Hozan Alan Senauke…

Ekai Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, BPF’s executive director, received ordination as a Zen priest in the tradition of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi on Saturday, September 20th at San Francisco Zen Center, from her teacher Zenkei Blanche Hartman. A large circle of family, friends, dharma brothers and sisters were there to witness and celebrate.

It is said that when a priest, monk, or nun is ordained, a baby buddha is born, and in every world, all the buddhas and bodhisattvas rejoice. They know they need all the help they can get. They will get exactly that from Zenju.
