    The Lineage: A Continuing History...

    The history of Zen Buddhism presents itself as a family saga. Each priest of the Sôtô school today belongs to an uninterrupted line which traces itself either to Gasan Jôseki Zenji (1276-1366) or to Meihô Sotetsu Zenji (1277-1350), two disciples of Keizan Zenji, all other Japanese lines having since become extinct. One is integrated into a lineage at the time of the ceremony of Transmission of the Dharma, by which the Master makes the Disciple his successor. Presented here is the chain of teachers that connects Eihei Dôgen Zenji to Gudo Nishijima Roshi, and in the 41st generation from Dogen, Jundo James Cohen of the Treeleaf Zendo. As well, its links are said to reach back in time through China and India, on to the historical Buddha, Śhākyamuni. The line is also closely associated, ever since the middle of the 15th century, with the temple Tôkei' in, located near to the Japanese town of Shizuoka. It is a long, yet continuing history. In an important sense, it is not to be limited to any place or nation, nor is it merely a timeline which flows from past to present: In Dogen’s teachings, past is present is future, while the future flows into the past as the past becomes the future. In this way, each teacher stands for all others, and all are with us now.

      The laptop I was having audio issues with finally moved on from it's current life, I believe it is now a turtle named Larry, but I cant prove that.

      Anyway, I have no camera on my desk top so my sits will be one way for the foreseeable future.

      This a great idea and I wish I COULD participate but 8pm on a Friday night is a bit tough for an active family. I will just play sit a longs and watch netcasts when able. Thank you so much for doing this.

      Hi Clark,

      There is no difference (except in the mind, where all difference and judgments are found) between the "live-live" sittings and the anytime "live-later"sittings. I look forward to sitting with you.

      The seated monk smiled and said, "Tell me, where isn't Buddha?"

      Time to think-non-think outside of the box!

    My advice would be not to concern yourself with such a thing until after jukai. Until then, finish your rakusu or post pictures showing

    Just a question about Jukai and thereafter. I notice that quite a few go by their Dharma names, while a number do not. I don't have
