    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'.

    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

                            Wow - that was lovely.

                            The new camera is 8) Not just visually - but clarity of sound - travelling with the bell - all the external sounds - great!
                            Wonderful feeling of presence.

                            ..... and I'd really like a copy of Will's version of The Heart Sutra

                            Thank you
