    September 27-28th, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    TODAY'S ZAZENKAI WILL BE OUTSIDE IN THE GARDEN, SITTING WITH THE FALL WEATHER.

    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning)

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

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication
    00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
    00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
    00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
    01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS & VERSE OF ATONEMENT


    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'.

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


    Chant Book (PDF)

    or

    Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML)

    So, please join us as soon as you can, and we will keep a Zafu open for you.

    Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!


    Gassho, Jundo

    How wonderful to sit outside! Will sit tomorrow morning ... maybe outside too, if I can pick up the wifi. Nice weather at the moment.

    Thanks to my wonderful wife, the financial wizard that she is, we managed to find a way to get me a new laptop! It involves me quitting smoking and some other small sacrifices but there it is and so I will be able to participate once again!

    How did we get to sitting outside for this Zazenkai? Did I miss anything? Great idea btw.

    I'll be there, live but invisible: for some reason I can't seem to convince Linux that my laptop has a video camera...

    Technology is awesome. Not only we sit together, we are able to listen to birds and insects sing in the other side of the planet. And choppers and EVAs* too!

    Amazing.

    Thank you all who sat and will sit. Have a lovely weekend

    Gassho,

    I think the helicopters detected an international network of people connected via the internet and decided to check it out. Then they realized we were just zennies and moved on.

    At my Abbey this weekend, so I sat Saturday evening in my cell. Not a flowering garden, but a garden all the same!

    Thank you Jundo, Dosho and everyone who are seated. I could not sit in the garden, rain threatened. Out of the window, the neighborhood animals have made a singing contest with animals from a different continent ... great

    Crows in my yard talked to crows in the Treeleaf garden - in a different time and space. Hunting dogs in the fields across the road barked and bayed, and dogs barked somewhere near Treeleaf. A helicopter flew over Jundo and a mosquito landed on my arm. All different, but never separate.

    Thank you all for your practice. Wonderful!

    Deep gassho,
