    Our Zazenkai consists of our chanting the 'Heart Sutra' and the 'Identity of Relative and Absolute (Sandokai)' in English (please download our Chant Book at the link below), some full floor prostrations (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), a little talk by me ... and we close with the 'Metta Chant', followed at the end with the 'Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'. Oh, and lots and lots of Zazen and walkin' Kinhin in between!

    or

    Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML)

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU POSITION YOUR ZAFU ON THE FLOOR IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STARING DIRECTLY AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, BUT CAN GLANCE OVER AND SEE THE SCREEN WHEN NECESSARY. YOUR ZAFU SHOULD ALSO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE COMPUTER SCREEN WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE ZAFU FOR THE CEREMONIES, AND HAVE ROOM FOR BOWING AND KINHIN.

    ALSO, REMEMBER TO SET YOUR COMPUTER (& SCREEN SAVER) SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHUT OFF DURING THE 4 HOURS.


    I hope you will join us ... an open Zafu is waiting. When we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

    Gassho, Jundo

      I am sorry for the sound quality today, as I had the microphone set incorrectly.

      We will dedicate this Zazenkai to all our sick and passing family members. Gassho, J

      Thank you for the sit! Happy Ango

      Gassho,

      Risho

      Edit: I had to get my workout in earlier or I would have made an excuse to miss it, but I wanted to follow up that I think that was one of my favorite Dharma talks. Desire is so pervasive in my life, and Ango is a tool.. it's a respite from that desire. Sometimes, I get pissed off... I get pissed off a lot when I don't get what I want, frankly, but the more I practice the more that anger subsides. I use Ango to tame certain desires that get out of hand, e.g. not committing to sitting, or drinking too much, drinking too much coffee, etc. not to mention the reaffirmation of my dedication to the sangha and re-examination of the precepts. I really love Ango.

      Today, for instance, I had a lot of resistance. I did not want to sit through a 4 hour zazenkai, so when you started talking about how we sit when we don't want to, I felt so much better. Not only do I feel resistance to practice, but I feel guilty for feeling resistance. hahah So when I hear it from you that it just happens, it's very encouraging.

      Gassho again

      Thank you everyone for your practice. I will sit Zazenkai tonight. My tiny apartment is too small for kinhin with the kids sleeping and the wife watching TV so I will alternate standing meditation and prostration for kinhin (hope that's okay). Metta!

      Hello,

      thank you all for your practise. After having sat for an hour I received a phone call asking me to visit my hospice "patient"...who was close to dying yesterday and is probably dead now. I will have to sit this one in one-to-two hour installments.

      All the best and gassho,

      I've finished the zazenkai. Thank you for the talk, Jundo--a great way to start Ango. As always very practical and down to earth in your explanations of the "why's" of practice. Thank you especially for your discussion of people asking for metta. People sending "air prayers" always seemed like hocus pocus, but the idea of developing compassion in oneself as a means for it to spread, well that makes more sense to me.

      Gassho,
      Kaishin / Matt

      Almost done. I also had to sit in installments due to family labor day fun activities. I even tried to wake up extra early on Saturday to get it in before everyone woke up, but the toddler would have none of that once he heard dad walking around. Anyway, I am very excited to have started Ango. It should be an interesting 90 days!

      Gassho. Even through a recorded session, I am thankful for the treeleaf community to sit with.
