memorial ceremnony for O Sensei
Sunday, April 26 we had a ceremony for O Sensei. Extra flowers were placed below the picture. In front of them were two candles.To the side of the candles was a box with little plants. The whole class was one person at a time (starting with the sensei's of the dojo) goint o the front of the picture of O Sensei, bowing taking one of the plants and placing it on the silver tray in front of the candles, bowing again then four claps.
At the same time Sensei was reading from a book. She only stopped when the person was getting ready to do the four claps.
Did anyone else have a ceremony like this?
