    July 17th, 2010 Saturday Zazenkai (NOW 90 MINUTES!)

    NOTICE: DUE TO PERSONAL TRAVEL THIS WEEKEND, I MAY NOT BE BACK IN TIME FOR THE LIVE SITTING. IN SUCH CASE, I WILL NEED TO POST A RESIT OF A PREVIOUS SIT. I APOLOGIZE.

    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:

    NO LIVE NETCAST TODAY DUE TO TRAVEL

    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

    No apologies are needed, Jundo. The service you provide to use daily through the forum and weekly through Zazenkai's are a blessing.

    Gassho,

          Gassho as well! Much leg pain/sleepiness/fog this morning. Still a bit hard to not judge when you end up asleep against a wall for a few minutes. :mrgreen:
