  • TREELEAF SANGHA online 2-DAY ANGO-JUKAI-ROHATSU RETREAT -- 2012 --

    PLEASE NOTE SOME MICROPHONE SQUEAK DURING THE FIRST FEW HOURS of FIRST DAY. PLEASE JUST SIT WITH IT!



    WELCOME ...

    ... to our TREELEAF 'AT HOME' Two Day 'ALL ONLINE' ROHATSU (Buddha's Enlightenment Day) RETREAT, being held by LIVE NETCAST on Saturday/Sunday December 8 and 9, 2012.

    Please 'sit-a-long' with the LIVE NETCAST at the times below ... to be visible at the below links to GOOGLE+ during those hours ...

    HOWEVER, you may still join the Retreat and sit-a-long at ANY AND ALL TIME after, by the real time recorded version at the links below (no different from the original!).

    The full sitting schedule is below, and you may download our CHANT BOOK HERE(LINK to PDF).


    and please review the various RETREAT POINTERS HERE(LINK to PDF).


    Recordings of each segment are posted below in time order ... and if we drop from mind all thought of 'now' 'then' 'here' and 'there' ... we will all be sitting together right when and where you are!

    This Retreat celebrates the 'official' closure of our ANGO (90 day Special Practice Season) at Treeleaf, is a part of current preparations for our JUKAI (Undertaking the Precepts) Ceremony in January, and marks ROHATSU ... the traditional holiday in Japan celebrating the time of the Buddha's Enlightenment.

    Jundo will be guiding the first day of sitting on Saturday, and Taigu on Sunday.

    In case of technical problems, please just go along as best you can with the schedule ... we sit with "what is".. .

    OF COURSE, EVERYTHING IN MODERATION ... if the sitting ever feels too much, be sure to walk lots and lots of Kinhin (even if during a sitting period). And if the whole retreat becomes too much, or you feel ill, you may slow down ... , spread things out, shorten the sittings ... or STOP! Be sure that you have someone close by whom you can call, or who can check on you from time to time. If there is any question about health, do not take any chances!

    Please write and let us know how it goes. Gassho, Jundo & Taigu

      I will have to catch the full retreat later this week, of all weekends in the year to have to work alone, this was it, (the new coworker took 2 weeks off" before I could snag vacation time).

      I just finished ... I'm exhausted, but very happy to belong to this Sangha, this retreat experience is unforgettable. I greatly appreciate the efforts of our teachers Jundo and Taigu, my fellow 'leafers in their zafus right next to me, and those who put their tech expertise so we can use this tools acroos all places and times.

      Thank you to Jundo and Taigu for giving of yourselves during this wonderful retreat. Jundo I felt that leg cramp all the way in Indiana and yet you carrried on. Taigu you were suffering in health but continued to give to us. I bow to both of you. The teachings that both of you shared meant alot to me.

      This is a fantastic method of sharing in retreat with many miles between everyone. Glitches happen even in an live and in person setting so nothing for me to ponder as to how to improve. I was able to catch one live but then I lost it from there. YouTube to the rescue. I am going to have to get into the Google+ for the future.

      Deep thanks to Jundo and Taigu for doing this. These retreats always bring me back to beginner's mind and renew my enthusiasm for the practice (no matter how much I grumble at 5 a.m. or applaud when Jundo says "I HATE SESSHIN!")

      This was also the first year I didn't have to wrestle with recordings on JustinTV, so I'm totally grateful for YouTube and Google+.

      I was interested to hear (if I heard this right) Taigu say in oriyoki, his teacher would use a daikon radish to clean the bowls, and then eat it. Perhaps it would be good next year, instead of a sponge, to use a radish or maybe a piece of a crunchy vegetable to do this?

      Thank you very much to Jundo and Taigu for this inspiring retreat. I sat with my husband almost the complete time, but in our time zone. We enjoyed the dharma talks very much and still think about it. The time frame of oriyoki was much to short for us, we continued eating in the rest period ;-)
      We are looking forward our next Rohatsu in 2013- the first time with our baby

      And thanks to all the others who sat/will sit with us!

      Thank you all for being such an inspiration. I was able to sit a bit Sunday but nothing live. My practice this past weekend comprised of tending to a very sick little girl.

      Deep bows to you all

      By the way, if anyone would like to see what Oryoki is "supposed" to look like, please watch this beautiful video of a Retreat at Zen Mountain monastery. They are very ritual conscious there, and pay special attention to form. Very much more a ballet than my "two left feet" version during our Retreat. Of course, all is beautiful in its way. As I wrote on another thread today.

      We also make an effort in the Japanese Zen Traditions to be very sincere, precise and "perfect" in undertaking each ceremony. At the same time (this is the Shikantaza heart), we know that it will never be "perfect", something will always go "wrong", and yet even the worst screw up of some ritual (Oryoki eating is a prime example) is always "perfectly imperfect" and "perfectly just what it is" (which is not to be confused with "perfect just as it is"). We live through all such perspectives at once ... not neglecting the goal of doing something well, yet simultaneously dropping all goal and need to attain (a kind of healthy schizophrenia! ) We can always get better AND there is no place to "get" but ever right here. We should for "perfection" and "good", all while simultaneously dropping all dichotomies of "perfect vs. imperfect" "good and bad" (we are not nihilists).

      Such is our Practice, and a "Zen Klutz" like me who always drops the incense or drops his chopsticks is very much at home!
      Perhaps if folks are interested, we could have an "online class" here to make a more serious training in Oryoki. It is an old and traditional, but powerful Practice.

      I would definitely be interested. Every year I say I'm going to study the video in the weeks leading up to the retreat, but invariably end up watching it the day before.

      It's not something I would want to do all the time, but that's kind of the point, right?

      I love this video and particularly their ino's voice.
      I can tell you, Oryoki with MRO students is intense, but also very moving. Just the way the drums go at the beginning, and then the servers come storming in with bowls held high...
      I sat next to a guy who lovingly, meticulously cleaned his bowls, handling them like a baby. While I was still caught up in "doing it right". It was wonderful to watch.

      Just finished Rohatsu a little modified due to work and the kids. A heartfelt thanks to all who sat and will sit. Thank you Taigu, Jundo and all of Treeleaf for the opportunity created here. As far as comments it was perfect or maybe imperfect...and Kannon was present.

      Gassho,

      Daido

      P.S. I would interested in the oryoki as well.

      Two days of putting the myriad things to rest
      ... wonderful, wonderful!

      The gaze of compassion - of course!

      Thank you Taigu and Jundo and all who are sitting throughout time and space.

      When I accept the moment as it is
      there is still hope for change
      my knees hurt
      but the bell will ring
      the washing machine is annoying
      but the cycle will end

      When I become the moment
      it stretches into eternity
      now is now is fully now
      the bell will never ring
      the machine will never stop
      no hope, hopelessness
      just this thus
      then the next moment arrives

      I just finished my retreat, if it can truly be 'finished'. A little later than I had planned...but time is relative, right? . It was truly wonderful to sit with you all! Jundo and Taigu, thank you so much for all your efforts, your teachings, and your practice!

      Now, off to catch up on some sleep...hopefully.
