    July 30th, 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 JUSTIN.TV:
    http://www.justin.tv/treeleafzen

    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

          Thank you Jundo Sensei, Mr. T, and all fellow sitters! Though I didn't understand everything, I did hear many of my favorite Tea words in your talk Jundo

            Hi John,

            You may hear me give a little talk to our sitters here "in the flesh" in Tsukuba, often in Japanese if they are Japanese folks. But the content is usually about the same as the "Sit-a-Long" talk that week, so no need to try to listen to it (in fact, I try to talk softly). Just sit.

              I fell out of weekend practice for a while there, but it's nice to be back.
