The Way flows onto pages,out of mouths,
The hollow waking sounds of morning,
The final purple grey of dusk.

Red Maple continues to expand its resources for participants and the general public.

To receive any of these resources as part of our regular mail-outs, contact us.


    Our blog is the best way to keep current with what's happening at Red Maple.
    It contains
  • commentary from a Dharma perspective,
  • notices on the Weekly and Monthly Schedule,
  • Photos
  • Our Quarterly newsletter, Mokugyo
    Visit the RMS Leaflet Blog


    Every week regular sangha members receive notice of upcoing events, a copy of the week's ARE column and links to any new information. This is also available
    on the RMS Leaflet Blog


    The mokugyo is the "wooden fish" whose rat-ta-tat sound calls us to chanting and announces the presentation of the Dharma.
    It is also the name of our quarterly newsletter. In it we summarize, in text and photo, the events of the previous three months at the Red Maple Centre.


    At each of our monthly Mahasangha events, Innen will present a talk on the theme for that month . These are now available in MP3 format or as a text document. Contact Innen for the link password.

  • Our theme for 2012 is Christian-Buddhist Interfaith Dialogue. We have initiated a conversatin with the United Church in Pugwash , Nova Scotia. Each month we will address a different topic related to our shared spiritual endeavours. To view the monthly discussion, go to the Dialogue Page


    We have a good collection of several hundred titles related to Buddhism, especially Japanese Dharma. We also have several rare CD's and DVD's. Materials are listed on our Library Thing page. (Access password can be obtained from Innen)
    Regular participants can borrow these materials, using the Resource Borrowing Book located beside the Resource Shelf.

  • We are now developing a collection of valuable electronic documents, mostly in PDF format. In future we will have these available on a CD for loan. We have recently acquired an e-reader (Kobo Touch) and are adding dharma resources to it. In future it may be borrowed for short periods to read our e-books.


    Since April of 2010, Innen has been one of the featured writer-commentators of the Ask the Religion Experts column. Published weekly in the Sunday edition of the Ottawa Citizen, the feature offers the perspectives of six or more representatives of mainstream religious communities. Each week they answer the questions which range from moral issues to social questions to cultural commentary.
