    PLEASE NOTE OUR NEW --90-- MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE!!

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE TODAY from 10pm Japan time (that is New York 9am, Los Angeles 6am, London 2pm and Paris 3pm, SATURDAY) ...
    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at USTREAM:

    http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sit-a-long-with-jundo

    But FEAR NOT if not possible for you to join 'live' in your location at those times, as the entire sitting is recorded in 'REAL TIME' and available for full participation 'on demand' at any time after that, no different from the 'live' sitting :

    'REAL TIME' recorded 'ANY TIME' version link is here:

    http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/7909548

    OUR NEW 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:


    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
    00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS, & VERSE OF ATONEMENT

    As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

    Please download and print out the words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:

    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231

    So, please join us as soon as you can, and we will keep a Zafu open for you.

    Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!


    Gassho, Jundo

    Thanks for the sit and the birthday wishes...another year older, but not necessarily wiser!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

      Thanks Jundo
      It is blue sky outside today...and also a bit more than usual during the zazen! Have a great week.

              24 hours later, "now" and "then" only illusions. Sometimes I get very attached to a routine, and if I can't stick to it exactly I get annoyed. It's good for me to have to deal with bumps now and then. Very turbulent thoughts today, found myself lost for a good period of time. But again, as long as it's understood right? :P

                Mmm, I know I posted here yesterday morning but it seems to have fallen off...anywho (to quote a Canadian Dharma-Brother) I was there Jundo. The sit began in the extreme muggy heat we have here these days, but "sometime and somewhere" during Zazenkai, a nice little breeze would wafty through my open windows and bring joy.

                Gassho,
