  • Jan 31th-Feb 1st, 2014 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - for Nishijima Roshi

    NOTE: Our Monthly 4-Hour Treeleaf Zazenkai will be moved to February 15th in commemoration of Buddha's Parinirvana Day and to mark the passing of our Teacher, Gudo Wafu Nishijima. Today's sitting is also dedicated to Nishijima Roshi, as well as other friends now experiencing hard days.



    Hello All,

    ... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

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:

    Gassho, Jundo

      I'll be there. Room for kinhin in the basement now too. Unless it floods, which it has a habit of doing. In that case... swimming kinhin.

      Let me also note that a lovely small calligraphy was donated by our Shokai, and will be kept in our Zendo from now on. It will be featured as well during today's Zazenkai. It is from the Heart Sutra, and reads ...

      ... 無罣礙 ... no attachments nor hindrances ...

      Let us dedicate it to Shokai's wife, Lillian, who is in hospital today ...

      Thank you for the invite, but for some reason I didn't get it.

      Google+ is a mystery. Just like life itself.

      Great zazenkai Sat invisibly but it was still wonderful. Didn't know I could be invisible... I vow to use this power for the good of all sentient beings. Anyway, thank you.

      Well, last week we all got in but Shingen could not. This week, Google+ decided to balance the scales.

      Lovely Zazenkai. Thanks to Jundo and to all who sat along with the live feed.
