The Board of Directors has authorized a committee to explore the possibility of naming our zendo. Our sacred space, our temple, our zendo, is composed of the dojo (meditation hall), the building and the grounds. It is customary in China and Japan to name Zen temples. Right now we are essentially the zendo with no name.
A suggestion box has been placed under the main bulletin board. If you wish to participate, please submit, on a peace of paper, your suggestion for a name for our zendo, and put it in the box. You may put your name on the paper or leave it anonymous. You may submit more than one suggestion. One alternative is to leave the zendo unnamed and a vote for this alternative is an expectable choice. At a future undetermined date, when all who wish to, have submitted suggestions, the committee and the BOD will revisit the issue at an announced meeting. If no acceptable name emerges, the process will be continued until a name is chosen or a decision is made to leave well enough alone. Thank you for your participation in this exercise.
