  • Our SPECIAL ZAZENKAI with GUSTAV ERICSSON

    Please join us for a special Zazenkai with my Dharma Brother, Gustav Ericsson, who is visiting Treeleaf Tsukuba, Japan from Sweden!



    Gustav Ericcson is a Dharma successor of our Gudo Wafu Nishijima Roshi (Jundo's Teacher and Taigu's "Grand" Teacher) and, since 2010, also a Lutheran Priest with the Church of Sweden, which is the largest Christian church organization in Sweden and largest Lutheran church in the world. In 2009 he founded Anzenkai, which is an interreligious network of friends based on daily shikantaza zazen. He is also a former prison guard before becoming a Lutheran priest. Obviously, Gustav is very interested in the intersection of Buddhist and Christian Teachings. You can read an interview with Gustav HERE.

    Here is something that Gustav wrote on his website for his sitting community in Sweden, Anzenkai.com, and I hope he will speak about when he joins us ...

    Anzenkai is not based on any particular religious creed. Some of us are Christians, some are Buddhists, and some belong to other traditions or none at all. We all practice zazen together as friends, enriched by our diversity.

      Dear All,

      JUST A RE-MINDER THAT, DUE TO GUSTAV'S TRAVEL, START TIME WAS MOVED 30 MINUTES LATER, TO THE FOLLOWING.


      Right now, Zazen and Gustav's Talk will commence from 11:30am Japan time Monday morning, which is New York 10:30pm, Los Angeles 7:30pm (Tuesday night). Unfortunately, because the world is round, that is London 3:30am and Paris 4:30am (early Wednesday morning).

      The Zazenkai will be between one hour and 90 minutes in length.

      I have the following people reserved for the Hangout.

      Jundo & Gustav
      Yugen
      Koshin
      Shingen
      Droclose
      Kyonin
      Joe
      Amelia
      Risho


      The above individuals will receive an invite to join the Hangout about 15 minutes before the hangout start. I hope others can join us "one way" on the screen I will post at the top of this thread shortly before the Zazenkai.

      I am ready for the Zazenkai, but there is some heavy thunder and rain over here, so if I do not join on time or dissappear in the middle, surely it is due a power outage, so feel free to use my spot ( something Sheldon would never say )

      I'm ready. I will be using my phone. Will I be getting an invitation on the Hangouts app? I've never done it this way before.

      Received invitation. Google + says "You do not have a device." Will be no-show.

      Sorry,

      Sorry that I kept cutting in and out toward the end. Something was definitely up with my connection. I will catch up with the recorded version in a few minutes.

      Thank you very much, Gustav. And thank you to Jundo and all the others who sat and will sit.

      Marvelous, absolutely marvelous. Gustav is indeed inspirational. It occurs to me you can tell something about one's level of practice by the ease with which they smile. Gustavo and Jundo both smile easily and genuinely.

      Thank you Jundo for bringing in guest teachers. Thank you Gustav for sharing the wholeness and unity of your practice with us.

      Thank you Jundo and Gustav and everyone!
      My family, my girlfriend, and my coworkers all comment on how I rarely smile around them. Now this talk. I anticipate feeling pain in my face for a few weeks. But it will be good practice!
      Such a timely talk with a Christian priest too! I may send this video to a few of my friends and family.

      Thank you again everyone, it was a good lesson to sit with all of you.
