    April 24th-25th Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai (NEW START TIME!)

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

    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

            Hi all, last time I've had problems with my microphone and webcam.

            I'll try to make it 2-way this time but if omething goes wrong I'll be sitting one way.

            gassho,
            Daiyo.

            sat today.

              Good Afternoon,

              I intend to sit Zazenkai tonight for my first time assuming I can keep my three little ones at bay long enough. If not I'll sit with the recording.

              Gassho, Dylan, Sat Today

                A note about Robes (Rakusu or Kesa)Just prior to the beginning of the weekly and monthly Zazenkai, should you have already received the precepts (Jukai) and have a rakusu or in some cases a Kesa (for those ordained or with permission from their teacher), take a moment to do the following:


                This is from the Chant Book, am I supposed to have taken the precepts before I may sit Zazenkai? Either way, do I need to dress in any certain way, as I have no robes... Many thanks!

                  Hi Dylan,

                  Anyone can sit with us, running around children are welcome (although please make sure your mike is muted for others), and no special clothing except for something comfortable and not too colorful.

                  Gassho, J
