    October 25-26th, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    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

    00:55 – 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

    I do not have my chant book printed off yet (plan on doing that soon), but I do think I will be able to be there tonight, live, for at least part of Zazenkai. Looking forward to it

    Thank you all who sat and will sit.

    I apologize for being distracted during chanting. Too much noise inside the house and outside on the street. Will do better next time.

    (Cat was demanding too much attention )

    Have a lovely weekend.

    I never did see the option to join in on Google Plus, but I joined in without it never the less.

    Zazen, neither trick nor treat...

    Thank you all for your practice.

    Thanks everyone who sits! We just went on a ghost tour in Savannah, GA with my kids for Halloween. My youngest son said "Dad, once you get past the fact your looking for ghosts, it's actually kind of fun."

    Interesting to know that Harry Potter is big in Japan, so much that it's all anyone seems to dress up as for Halloween.

    Was a good sit. Thanks everyone!

    It's good to know that Harry Potter is still big in general. It was such a big part of my childhood and adolescence.

    Thank you all for your practice. Happy Halloween.
