    VIDEO POSTED: Our Treeleaf 'Shukke Tokudo' Ordination!!

    Dear All,

    THE VIDEO IS NOW AVAILABLE, and I hope all will join in by watching and sharing in last Thursday's "Homeleaving" priest ordination of Shohei, Fugen and Mongen ... conducted by Taigu and me. This is an important moment for any Buddhist Sangha, and a time for celebration. Congratulations to the three ordainees!

    The video is in three parts (about 40 minutes) ...

    PART 1:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jtw2barqOu0[/video]]

    and

    PARTS 2 and 3:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YFGm0Fopibc[/video]]

    http://www.youtube.com/user/treeleafzen ... Mc0LlwiXwY

    Be sure to toggle to "FULL SCREEN" for the full effect (the little button on the lower right of the Youtube screen)

    The ceremony is traditional, yet groundbreaking ... for we believe it is the first time that a Buddhist Ordination has been performed simultaneously on three continents (with Taigu and Jundo in Japan, and our three ordainees in Canada, Germany and Sweden) all simultaneously linked by audio-visual media via the internet. Some of the more conservative and "stuck in their mental barriers", unable to think outside the box, folks in the Buddhist world may have trouble with that fact. Many Buddhist folks ... who are usually all about dropping categories like "time and space" ... and who regularly invite all the ancient Buddhas and long dead Ancestors into their ceremonies ... completely reject that a ceremony of ordination can be done 'long distance' via the 'internet'.

    Well, welcome to the future ... which is just the present all along!

    Gassho, Jundo

    I give thanks to the internet, because this is cool!

            Hi,
            thank you Peter for that link, I thought I was doing something wrong.
            Just sat the three vids. Congratulations and deep respect to Shohei, Fugen and Mongen and thank you for sharing such an inspirational time with us all. A perfect boost at the start of Ango and Jukai prep.

            Again thanks and very low Gassho

                    Hi all!
                    watched it all through with my sweetheart and she giggled at the intro ...very...hmmm starwars-esque, non?
                    Brilliant work on the video! I didn't have goose bumps during, due to the 30C +temps outside, layers of clothes etc..but during it was quite a mixture of feelings and thoughts ive yet to put into a coherent structure that could aptly describe it.

                    Anywho, I'm excited to show those who couldn't be physically with me during, these vids...there was little the set up did not capture...he including my non-mistakes

                      I watched the Ordination in silence on Thursday, although I knew what was happening having so recently gone through it myself. The almost monastic silence of it really touched my heart. Now having been able to watch and hear the same Ordination I feel doubly blessed. I was able to renew my vows with the new priests and to participate with them, Jundo and Taigu and all of the Sangha in this truly momentous occasion. One, I am sure of many more to come.

                      Gassho,
