Email Announcements To Be Sent

It has come to the Dojo’s attention that some members and supporters have not been able to receive or open up the newsletter when it was sent to them as an electronic attachment. Those folks will now receive a short email from chozenjid001@gmail.com informing them that the latest announcements and articles are available on the Dojo website. Henceforth, the Chozen-ji newsletter will be distributed only through the website, www.chozen-ji.org.
