    Hello All,

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

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




    FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED FOR FUTURE WEEKS. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

    As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for about 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

    Thanks Jundo and everyone. This was a good experience for my first live and online zazenkai. My back is not quite used to the duration, but I am sure time will help and spasms will reduce.

    Gassho,

    Richard

    p.s. Thanks Myoku et. al, for assisting with my Google+ issues.

    So glad you made it in to sit with us Rich (of course you were sitting with us before and always), but the technology can be difficult to navigate!

    Thanks to Jundo and all who sit...deep bows.

    The sound from the second microphone was clearer during my tests than during today's Zazenkai, but I will try to improve it for next time.

    ugh... moves are tiring. Gassho everyone! I have a dumb question: since we're in Ango, do you think we could do the Metta Practice at the end of the 90 minute zazenkai's? It's not a big deal; I just thought it would be nice. lol

    Have a great day,afternoon or night.

    Gassho,

    P.s The sound system was much better.. less echoing and tinny sounding than before

    Hi Risho,

    I probably won't add it to the weekly Zazenkai, but I encourage you to recite it after if you feel it a good time.

    And: "to be free from anger" hit me in a soft spot today - YES - this must be possible ... isn't this exactly what I yearn for ... yearned for as a small child, but then conditioned in anger I learned anger, I have taken my father's anger and made it my own ... ah don't you love those sudden jolts of live dharma words...

    They are not new mikes, but the old mikes used better. Sometimes in life we can take an old something and do better.

    I sat the with the recording last night and had a similar response to "be free from anger". Especially after it had been a trying day with young kids. I began the zazenkai with anger and ended (still a little frustrated) but with a smile .

    I sat with the recorded video the other day and about halfway into the first zazen session my phone rang. I picked it up: it was my biological mother. So I bowed and answered the phone. No separation. Zazen is zazen. Talking on the phone is not zazen - and it is zazen. Anyway, the conversation ended just as the bell rang for kinhin so I did that until I noticed the screen wasn't moving anymore. So I continued into the second zazen and kinhin, did the Verse of Atonement and Four Vows myself. Again, no separation. I sat the Zazenkai alone and I sat the Zazenkai with Treeleaf, with all sentient beings, with the Universe. We can also say the Zazenkai Zazenkai'd.
