    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.

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

    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!

    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!


    Gassho, Jundo

      The little talk today will be on three Koans of the 'Book of Serenity', being sailed in our 'Beyond Words & Letters Book Club' ...

      Also, something of the sailing films and stories below ...



      Are they three separate Koans? One Koan? Others' Stories? Our Story? This too is a Koan!

      I will be referencing this recent sailing movie, pretty good by the way ...

      ‘All Is Lost,’ With Robert Redford
      http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/18/mo...-sea.html?_r=0

      ... and also this 'real life' sailing story, in the news some weeks ago, of a sick baby and a sinking sailboat far out at sea (the story is told during the first 20 minutes here, from the US public radio show This American Life) ...

      http://audio.thisamericanlife.org/jo...shouse/525.mp3
      http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radi...525/transcript



      ... and this passage from Master Dogen's Shobogenzo-Zenki (The Whole Works) ...

      Life can be likened to a time when a person is sailing in a boat.
      On this boat, I am operating the sail, I have taken the rudder, I am pushing
      the pole; at the same time, the boat is carrying me, and there is no “I” beyond
      the boat. Through my sailing of the boat, this boat is being caused to be a
      boat—let us consider, and learn in practice, just this moment of the present.
      At this very moment, there is nothing other than the world of the boat: the
      sky, the water, the shore have all become the moment of the boat, which is
      utterly different from moments not on the boat. So life is what I am making
      it, and I am what life is making me. While I am sailing in the boat, my body
      and mind and circumstances and self are all essential parts5 of the boat; and
      the whole earth and the whole of space are all essential parts of the boat.
      What has been described like this is that life is the self, and the self is life.

      I have to attend my niece's graduation ceremony this evening and will likely miss the first half. I am hoping to be home and on my Zafu in time for the Dharma talk and the second half. If not, I will sit with the recording.
