Zen Priest Marries Her Same Sex Partner

Following on from the news that the Church of England and Church in Wales has managed to get itself exempted from offering same-sex marriages, the government has announced that all other religious organisations will be able to “opt in” to offering ceremonies.

As to Buddhism and gay marriage, Soto Zen priest and Abbot of the Village Zendo, Enkyo O’Hara Roshi recently married her partner, Barbara, at City Hall in New York.

Enkyo Pat O’Hara is a dharma successor of Tetsugen Bernard Glassman Roshi and is a member of the White Plum Asanga, an organization of affiliated teachers in the lineage of the late Taizan Maezumi Roshi.
