Welcome to the December 2022 issue of Myoju magazine, the final in our series on the theme of Harmony, with subtheme of ‘Reflection and Action’.

The Dharma talk given by Ekai Osho at the 10th Anniversary of the Canberra Soto Zen Group discusses the topic of the Three Treasures: Buddha, Dharma, Sangha. Part two of this talk will be published in the March 2023 issue. The feature article is a student talk given by Naomi Richards on her training as A2 class coordinator. In this issue we have five reflective poems from Helena Demovsek-Zorko prior to her going to Japan for her training at Toshoji.

Katherine Yeo contributed an article and photos from her last visit to Bodhgaya, India in October 2022 from her IBS overseas study.

This Sangha News reflects that life and death is a matter of Life: there are news about birth and death in our community. In fact, Ekai Osho’s teaching on Life and Death

(Shoji) is a topic in Retreat 71.

From this issue, I was appointed as Myoju Coordinator by Ekai Osho- Editor, replacing Margaret Kokyo Lynch. Due to changes in her personal circumstances, Margaret is no longer able to perform her role of Coordinator. We thank her for her exceptional dedication to the production of

Myoju over the years. I acknowledge the contribution of the members of the production team for this issue. I would like to thank all the contributors to this, my very first issue. It is only with your support that Myoju and my work can continue.
