Zen Poem by Taigu Ryokan (1758-1831)
My dear friend,
You and I had a sweet talk,
Long ago, one autumn night.
The year has rumbled along,
That night still in memory.
Dear SFZC Member,
Autumn has arrived, and it's once again time for the Annual Membership Meeting, which will take place on Sunday, November 23rd from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. It will be held at the Conference Center at 308 Page Street, next door to City Center. I apologize for the short notice, but sincerely hope you can make it.
As usual, this is a time to enjoy each others' company, learn a bit about Zen Center's financials, and receive a small gift in appreciation for your continuous support. This year's gift is a brush painting of an enso which represents the inclusion of all people and things in the Dharma realm.
And this year we are introducing something new, the "Bring a Friend" program. Any member who brings a friend who signs up for membership at the meeting, will receive a gift certificate for free dessert for two at Greens Restaurant (as long as they last).
So please join us for this festive event, and bring a friend!
