      Hi Jundo,

So, while not attached, I bow down and do embrace fully and honor the meaning in my heart. So it is with wearing Robes.
      I totally agree with you.
      Actually, it depends on how we approach it - a Buddha statue can be both something holy and something ordinary. The same holds true for my vacuum cleaner or any dust particle it removes.
      While these don't have a commonly accepted religious meaning I can give them the meaning when I approach them in a certain manner.

      It is like TNH's Gatha I use when I wash the dishes:
      Washing the dishes
      is like bathing a baby Buddha.
      The profane is the sacred.
      Everyday mind is Buddha's mind.

      Gassho,

      When Jundo put up the vacuum cleaner - I heard myself saying "no way" and then I burst into a laughter.
      While I spontaneously bow to random things in my environment after sitting it was very unusual seeing Jundo doing it during Zazenkai.
      (I am glad he didn't burn the Buddha statue...)

      Thanks for putting this into practice, Jundo, and thanks to all who sat and will be sitting!

      Gassho,

      So I'm guessing that vacuum cleaner doesn't have any . . . attachments.

      Anyway . . . best of luck to Gina!
