NYZ, New Year's Eve Chanting and Celebration, December 31, 8 p.m. This year we will reestablish a long-cherished tradition at New York Zendo Shobo-ji by ushering in 2015, the Year of the Sheep, with zazen, chanting, and the ringing of the large bell 108 times during the chanting of Kanzeon. Everyone will have the opportunity to strike the bell, make a vow, and offer incense, as we purify ourselves for the year ahead. Doors will open at 7:15 p.m. Refreshments will be served afterward. To help us in planning the celebration, please RSVP via email or call (212) 861-3333.
