[chuck] in Dharma, EHZC


Row of rakusu hanging up during work practice at the Empty Hand Zen Center. I think I was cleaning the bathrooms the day I took this photo. [NOTE: Although they look quite simple, the instructions for sewing a rakusu extend over 13 pages. Mine is hanging face out from the middle peg; the white, inscribed panel with the student's Dharma name, the Robe Verse, and the teacher's seal is on the back].
