    The Sitting Schedule is as follows;

    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!

    Please download and print out the Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

    Chant Book (PDF)

    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!

Everything is fine, my folks are in their mid-80s and need my presence right now. I will be sitting quietly tonight.

      Be well Yugen and will sit for you and your Mom tonight.

      Thank you everyone. It was nice to be here live the last 1.5 hours( though I couldn't figure out how to join on Google +, and didn't want to JUMP in the middle. ) Going backwards in time a wee bit now. Nice job Dosho

      I was very happy to hear the schedule tossed by the wayside today, since my Internet connection often tosses it by itself: crucial cues (like bells) are sometimes lost when the stream is, so I might end up doing 40 minutes of kinhin or 70 of zazen. In this situation, inflexibility doesn't really pay...

      I'm glad you are able to be with your parents tonight, Yugen. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts as I sit tomorrow.
      Thank you everyone for the sit tonight. I'm glad the mic was muted and you all couldn't hear our very upset pups who couldn't understand why they couldn't come in the room. They certainly tested my focus.

      Thank you for tonight!
      I overslept the start with 45min but joined in around the first kinhin. Then it all was a sleepy mess for me. But it was really nice to practice with you all. And I'm glad I fulfilled the start for my first ANGO.

      Hi from the UK. - wonderful Ango despite a head cold, internet dropping, teenage son hijacking the connection!!! But a lesson in accepting things as they are & the Ango for what it is, without preconceptions. Wonderful talk Jundo thank you & my thanks to all who sat & will sit. See you on the Ango trail!!!

      May you and your parents be well Yugen. Thank you all sitters, and sorry for my dog Lara appearing on screen on the Heart Sutra...it was her first Zazenkai Goya has more experience, and Bells and Mokugyo are not new to her, so she was sleeping no problem

      I had a power outage before the talk, due to the sky pouring out, so had to listen to it today, it was great....thank you all for your practice

      Happy Ango!!!
