    April 23rd, 2011 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (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:



    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!


    Gassho, Jundo

            I'll sit sunday morning. Sunday of ressurection is a perfect opprtunity to remind us that, after all, we die and are born again with every breath

              Thank you Jundo Sensei.
              FYI the mic cut out around the 1:24:44 mark when you moved it back to the computer.
              Usually i can't hear the talk you give during the 2nd Zazen but today with the mic being moved closer i could hear it well
              The Japanese lady came up with a great idea to ease the pain she must have been feeling in her legs. It was nice to see that she was able to get comfortable thus enabling her to enjoy her time with us.

              It was a great sit despite the technical difficulties with the microphone....and Jundo's pants :shock:

                  The pants fell down because they were wet from my getting up on the roof in the morning to try to plug the leak, thereby throwing a momentary monkey wrench in my chanting of the Heart Sutra which informed me that ultimately falling pants, rain and leaky roof are all Empty.

                  All is intimately connected. 8)

                    I was just teasing Neither event took anything away from the experience. Everything was perfect as is was!

                      Thanks Jundo, a lovely zazenkai, despite the lack of sound at the end. I hope you've fixed that roof, the dripping water meant I had to run as soon as kinhin started. You get that at this age :roll:
