  • January 3rd/4th, 2014 - OUR MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI! WELCOMING THE NEW YEAR!

    STILL HAVING ISSUES WITH INVITATIONS TO THE HANGOUT WHICH WE HOPE TO RESOLVE IN THE COMING WEEKS. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE AN INVITATION, WE ARE STILL SITTING TOGETHER IN OUR HEARTS.

    Readings for today's Dharma Talk are below in this thread.


    Please 'sit-a-long' with our MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE 8am to noon Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 6pm to 10pm, Los Angeles 3pm to 7pm (Friday night), London 10pm to 2am and Paris 11pm to 3am (early Saturday morning)) ... and visible at the following link during those times ...

    ... to be visible at the following link during those times and any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:

    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS are posted AT THIS LINK. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

    The Sitting Schedule is as follows;

    00:00 - 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA / SANDOKAI IN ENGLISH) & ZAZEN
    00:50 - 01:00 KINHIN
    01:00 - 01:30 ZAZEN
    01:30 - 01:50 KINHIN

    01:50 - 02:30 DHARMA TALK & ZAZEN
    02:30 - 02:40 KINHIN

    02:40 - 03:15 ZAZEN
    03:15 - 03:30 KINHIN
    03:30 - 04:00 METTA CHANT & ZAZEN, VERSE OF ATONEMENT, FOUR VOWS, & CLOSING


    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!

      An hour earlier in us? In Europe it's since octobre, strange; just noticed that.
      Good idea to post the study text of the zazenkai this time, maybe it's a good idea to continue it in the future to keep it in a file for example?

      Thanks everyone...deep bows.

      Shinzan: My question was, "How will we know when we are in "it" for profit and when are we in "it" for need?"

      Unfortunately I was unable to sit live with you all. The 4 hour Zazenkai is a little more difficult with so many in the family (5 children and the lovely wife). Tomorrow I will just sit with the recording. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity.

      Thank you all who sat, are sitting and will sit. Thank you Jundo for yet again a great talk and right on tune and thanks to Kyonin for being Doan . I must apologise Jundo for missing the time change, if I had seen it I would certainly have joined live. If the change is to be a regular occurrence I will definitely be up for joining live. Have a great weekend everyone and again Happy New Year!

      I believe the time change was my miscalculation. I will have it sorted out next month.

    In the most pedantic sense, trust and faith are two very different concepts. One is born from experience, history, and understanding (that would be trust).
