Sampai is followed by a hot and healthy buffet lunch for all. The purpose of sampai and jyorei is to generate spiritual light, purification, and spiritual transformation. We begin the sampai introduction at 10:30 with the formal sampai ceremony beginning at precisely 11am. Please arrive at least 10 minutes early for the sampai. At that time Sensei Alan Imai will lead us in chanting the Amatsunorito and Zengensanji after which he will share the healing light of jyorei with all those present. Bill Ellzey will be our presenter at this Sampai. Bill starts the year off for us annually with a slide show of his photographs. After the sampai a healthy buffet luncheon with Natural Agriculture, local and organic ingredients will be served. The luncheon is by donation. We hope many of you can join us.
