    Live Saturday Sitting with Jundo

    Just a reminder that I will be leading our weekly, 1 hour "live" Saturday sitting, midnight (Saturday/Sunday) Japan time ... which will be Saturday morning or afternoon in most parts of the world. Please check your local time. I will try to use both the 'Always Open Zen Hall" and USTREAM (so it can be recorded for later sitters). I will try to have links on the blog shortly before the sitting.

    I plan to start with 3 floor prostrations (or deep Gassho), then chant Heart Sutra in ENGLISH only this week (we will alternate English/Japanese week to week), then sit 30 or 35 minutes, the 10 minutes of Kinhin, closing with the chant of the "Verse of Repentance" and "4 Vows". Please join in all.

    Gassho, Jundo

      Hi Erik,

      Here is last week's sitting on video. The only difference is that this week we will chant the Heart Sutra in English. I hope you can join us.

        You know you've been doing Zen for a while, when chanting the Heart Sutra is fun. Yayyy!

            Hi Guys
            back from my hols and a challenging week at work & home. Managed to keep up my practice - but not much time for posting.
            I was there today - but couldn't get my technology to work in time. So instead I sat in our back garden for an hour - lawnmowers, children playing, frogs croaking, water gurgling, traffic and the wind blowing accompanied my sitting. But you were in my thoughts .
            Best wishes
            Jools

              It was nice to sit with everyone wherever and whenever we sat.

              Thanks
