    April 10th-11th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai (NEW START TIME!)

    reMINDer: NOTE OUR NEW STARTLESS START TIME, AN HOUR LATER THAN BEFORE!

    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast from 10am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 9pm, Los Angeles 6pm (Friday night), London 2am and Paris 3am (early Saturday morning)

    ... and to be visible on the following screen 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

    Also ... Greetings from our regular sitter here at Treeleaf Tsukuba in Japan, Mr. K ....

    ... who has so taken to Practice that he has gone off for a month (maybe more if he can) to sit with our friend Abbot Muho at Antaiji.

    He called me yesterday to say that he is hanging in there so far with the hard labor and 15 hours of 45 minute sittings!

    He said that he is still sitting with all of us, but he does wish he were in better shape and a little younger!

    Nine Bows, Jundo

            I'll try to be there. I've had the flu all week and am feeling pretty depleted.
            Warm regards to Mr. K too.

                  Sorry for the question, I often get confused with the world time.
                  My computer claims Tokio is (considering German DLST) 7 hours ahead of me.
                  I am 8pm, my clock is showing Tokio 3am tomorrow.

                  So my question is, should it be Paris 3am above?
                  I won't be participating live this time, but would like to in future.

                  Thank you.
                  Gassho,

                          Have you tried this site for sorting out those crazy world times? =)

                          Effortless time conversion and world time. Schedule conference calls, webinars & online meetings, plan travel and track flight arrival time across time zones.

                              Mr. K. wrote to say that, since yesterday was a Sesshin at Antaiji, today is a "Housan" (a traditional light day for the priests to do their laundry, shave their heads and such) ... so he will be using some of his precious time to sit with us today during Zazenkai one way!! Lovely.
