    February 11th, 2012 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 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 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:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN

    DUE TO TECHNICAL NON-HINDRANCES, THIS IS A RE-SIT OF AN EARLIER SITTING


    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

                This one will be a quiet Sunday morning sit for me. But I'll be there nonetheless.

                      I wanted to express my deep gratitude to all who sat tonight. I had a really bumpy couple of days and came close to not sitting tonight. I came to my zafu, sat, and saw you all here. You all carried me through - thank you and

                        That was great!

                        With technical problems but at the same time with no problems (day as everyday in reality, right?)

                        Thank you Jundo and all sitters.

                            Hey Guys,

                            We had a glitch the first half (we call them around here "technical non-difficulties" 8) ), but I am so glad you all know that it is part of the Practice ... sitting with what thus comes, as it comes. A wonderful sit.

                            Now, I am off to the hospital to bring our baby home.

                            Gassho, Jundo

                              It was good to sit all together - I look forward to our next Zazenkai. Thank you
