    April 19-20th, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    DUE TO 'TECHNICAL NON-DIFFICULTIES', TODAY IS A RE-SIT OF AN EARLIER 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 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
    00:45 – 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 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):


    Chant Book (PDF)

    or

    Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML)

    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

    Not sure if I'll be there as my parents are making a surprise visit. Either way, lots of opportunity for practice.

          I won't be able to attend to the live zazenkai. I'll sit the recorded version on Saturday morning, before sunrise.

                      I will be sitting with you for the first time. I believe it should be 7pm Chicago time. See you then.

                          Thank you Jundo, and everyone for sitting, as well, many thanks to Yugen for jumping in on our non-technical blimp. Have a great weekend everyone.

                            Due to "technical non-difficulties", the usually reliable Google+ seems to have had some issues. Well, keep on sitting.

                            Seems that Yugen kept things going, thanks for stepping in.

                            We sit as what is.

                            Gassho, J

                              Thank you Jundo, Yugen, and all. This was my first live Zazenkai.
                              Microphone difficulties meant I could only sit and bow. ^_^
