    April 26-27th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - What the Universe Cannot Do Without You ...

    Today's little talk is based on my even littler musings:

    "What the Universe Can't Do Without You ...
    ... and other sentient beings too.

    (LINK)






    Dear All,

    Please sit our Treeleaf Zazenkai for 90 minutes with Zazen, Heart Sutra and more. We meet virtually in our Zoom Scheduled Sitting Room here:
    JOIN ZOOM >>
    The password (if needed): << dogen >>





    For local times, please check the Practice Calendar here: TREELEAF NOW >> ( 10am Japan Saturday morning, NY 9pm, LA 6pm Friday night, London 2am and Paris 3am Saturday morning) or sit this Zazenkai any time thereafter here:

    However, "one way" live sitters are encouraged to come into the Zoom sitting, and just leave the camera and microphone turned off.
    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
    00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 VERSE OF ATONEMENT & FOUR VOWS
    01:30 - 01:45(?) Informal Tea Time (All Welcome)


    ATTENTION: Everyone, when rising for Kinhin or Ceremonies after Zazen, get up slowly, don't rush, hold something stable, you won't be "late", so TAKE YOUR TIME! Make sure you are careful getting up!






    Gassho, Jundo

    PS - There is no "wrong" or "right" in Zazen ... yet here is a little explanation of the "right" times to Bow (A Koan) ...

    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    Sit-a-Long with Jundo: Zazen for Beginners (12) - Basic Zendo Decorum At Home
    Some basic decorum and procedures for entering and sitting in your Zendo at home. Also, some instructions on Kinhin &quot;Walking Zazen&quot;. Yuriko the cat stops by to help us too. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJ3LvIzX0I0 Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 15 minutes to 35


    I also recommend a little Talk on why small rituals and procedures are so cherished in the Zendo:

      I may miss this one. See how it pans out. I have to do a Tai Chi demonstration tomorrow and need to do some traveling. Packing and preparing this evening. Beth is competing in a weight lifting competition on Sunday and we will be arriving Saturday night. I will either make it tonight or join on demand.

          Thank you everyone!

          Gassho,
          Kotei sat/lah today.

          Being a novice priest doesn't mean my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.

                Playing catchup. I guess I was helping the universe get caught up.

                Thank you everyone. I sat with you this morning.
