    March 16th, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    ReMINDer: DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME CHANGE in NORTH AMERICA (not yet in Europe)!

    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 midnight and Paris 1am (early Saturday morning)

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED AT THIS LINK. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN

    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 about 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 Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

    or

    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!

          What, no Heartlem Shake? Can I wear my blue trash can? No?

          Oh well... I'll be there

              I will have to sit at another time, my little girls birthday party is tonight (shhh, it's a surprise!). She turned 19 on Wednesday, I still can't believe it. Can somebody tell me who this guy is with all the grey hair I see in the mirror.

              It all begins when we say, “I”. Everything that follows is illusion.

                I can join up to kinhin hopefully. If thech. "no problems" will allow me (weak and erratic wireless connection has prevented me to join in live so far sorry about that). Otherwise I sure will sit the whole session as recorded. Hope to see you all!

                            Thank you, everyone.

                            I believe I may have left a phrase out of the Heart Sutra today. A lesson in distraction (nor the last time)! My apologies.

                            Even though All is Emptiness, all the words should be in the right place.
