  • Sitting and chanting mediation - all levels, including beginners.

10:30 AM:

  • Shin Buddhist Sangha Gathering and Service: Rev. Anita Tokuzen Kazarian
  • December Memorial ServiceExpressing gratitude to our ancestors who passed away in the month of November.

Following the Service:

  • Following coffee and cake, we will hold a short gathering. Our discussion will follow a short reading from River of Fire, River of Water, Chapter 18 - Arrogance. Handouts of the text will be provided for those who do not have the book.

What happens at a gathering?

We gather as an informal group.  We may do sitting meditation, chanting meditation, recitations, pay respect to those who have gone before us, to one another and the Buddha Dharma (the teachings).  The Sangha, one of the three treasures of Buddhism, gives us community and time to understand how Buddhism works in our daily lives.  We may share our thoughts, experiences or not.

What does not happen?

We do not worship, we do not have petitionary prayer, nor do we have rules or regulations to judge us from one another.


  • We follow the State of Ohio guidelines for Covid-19 safety and precautions.
  • Our gathering includes the name of those who have passed before us. To include the name of a loved one or friend, please email Rev. Anita.
  • Please contact Rev. Anita for visits to assisted living, nursing homes or hospitals for those who cannot attend the service.
