Join in Loving Action, Honoring Bernie‚Äôs 49th Day Since his Passing – Saturday, December 22
A number of people have asked about what to do to commemorate the 49th day since Bernie‚Äôs passing this coming Saturday, December 22.¬† I really liked an idea that our friend, Andrzej, had, that at a certain time on that day we all do a ceremony honoring Bernie.
Taking into account the many people on different continents that may wish to take part, I suggest 11 am Eastern US time.¬† Options on what to do at that time:
1. Do a Gate of Sweet Nectar service.
2. Do something smaller. Light a candle and a stick of incense, or else make a food offering, and recite one page from the Gate of Sweet Nectar in which we vow to cook the supreme meal.
3. Do something even smaller. Make a bow or give a stick of incense, and think of Bernie.
Saturday, December 22, would also be a good day to do some service to others: help someone with house work, cook someone a meal, offer a car ride, take care of the elderly, take care of children, help the indigent. In short, help somebody.
I think I can speak for Bernie‚Äôs family as well as myself when I warmly thank you for all your emails, phone calls, and offers of love and support that we have received during this time. What a community gathered around him! I‚Äôm deeply grateful for the years we had with him and with each other, and I hope we continue to work together honoring his memory and for the good of all beings.
Zen Peacemakers International will convene a memorial service for our Founder Bernie Glassman. It will be held on Sunday afternoon,¬†February 17th, 2019¬†at¬†Greyston Foundation in Yonkers, NY USA. More details will be disclosed soon. Attendance is open to the public, we kindly ask participants to RSVP below.
