    November 27th, 2010 Friday/Saturday Zazenkai

    PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE CHANGED TO AN EARLIER SITTING TIME A FEW WEEKS AGO FOR THE LIVE NETCAST!

    Hi,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE TODAY from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 7pm, Los Angeles 4pm (Friday night), London midnight and Paris 1am (early Saturday morning))

    ... 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/11105010

    OUR 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!

              Can I ask what their names are? They're getting to be familiar faces and I'd hate to keep thinking of them as The Lady in the Pink Sweater and The Guy. :wink:

                  Hi,

                  That's been Gina from the U.S. in the pink sweater, and Amin from Iran.
