Takkesa Ge

Takkesa Ge: the Kesa sutra

Also called the Kesa sutra, the Takkesa Ge is sung as a sign of veneration for the kesa, the Buddha’s robe. Before putting on the kesa, we place it above us, on our head, silently reciting the Takkesa Ge three times. During sesshins this sutra is sung together, by everybody, while still seated at the end of the morning zazen.

TRANSLATION

Oh, robe of great liberation,
Kesa of formless happiness,
I faithfully receive the Budhha’s teaching,
to help liberate all beings.

Recivir el kesa.
