    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 :

    OUR NEW 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

    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:

    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

          There was NO cushion sitting for me today. I don't think I would ever have gotten up from the cushion. I used a chair today and sat with the discomfort, although I was moving around a bit to be less uncomfortable. It was a good sit dispite all that, although most of my "sitting" this week has been ...on my back. It was so good to be with everyone today....You don't know!!! :?

          Gassho,

                  Though I couldn't join you all Saturday morning EST, I just sat now with you all in spirit now on Sunday morning.

                  Jundo, as usual, thank you for Zazenkai.

                  Gassho all,
