Trying "sya-kyo" (写経)

2010_09060003

I tried "sya-kyo (写経)" at "Koya-san cafe" in Marunouchi.
I went there after 1 p.m. and I could make a reservation for 3 p.m.  But unfortunatelly, I got a bloody nose suddenly just when my turn had come.  I had to take a rest to stop bleeding.
I could start "sya-kyo" at 4 p.m. It was the first time for me to copy surta by hand.  Before and after "sya-kyo", we chanted a Buddhist sutra acccoring to a Buddhist monk's instructions.  Although my legs have completely gone numb, it was a valuable experience.
