The Okesa has been born!

Okesa (Buddha’s robe) was born yesterday at 6 pm. It is 4.5 feet (height), 6.5 feet (width), and weighs 2 pounds.

The Brooklyn Zen Center sangha had been sewing a nine-fold okesa (full-body robe) for dharma teacher and senior priest Rev. Kosen Greg Snyder, in a practice lead by Kikuko Morimoto.
