BLESSINGS

Every day is a good day.

An individual ceremony and blessings give your event, for example your dedication ceremony for a place, building, a business or facility etc. a clerical, formal and public frame to consciously carry out and process this important event. Your ceremony will be held by a Zen Monk. It is an expression of your gratitude and a request for a safe and harmonic cooperation between people in private and business life.

Legislation

"Thou shalt! Thou shalt not!" is none of our business. We are politically and denominationally independent and are subject to the Swiss legislation. Our zen monks and zen nuns give your ceremony a formal and public character and a blessing.

Non-Denominational

The ceremony is non-denominational. Members of all faiths are welcome.

PROCEDURE

Since there are no compulsory and complex rituals for the ceremony, we will determine its sequences in accordance with your wishes.

  • In preparation for your individual ceremony we recommend a short templestay at the Zen Temple.
  • We will recite the "Logos from the Heart" and give a short speech.
  • To symbolize the transience of life and death, each of those present can burn a pinch of incense at the end of the ceremony.
  • For more specific information regarding duration of the ceremony, schedule, additional texts and speeches, we will gladly discuss it with you personally.
  • Please note that the number of participants does not matter.
