    December 20th-21st, 2013 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    NOTE: BECAUSE OF (AGAIN) INTERNET NON-COOPERATION, THE BELOW IS A RESIT OF AN EARLIER 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 7pm, Los Angeles 4pm (Friday night), London midnight and Paris 1am (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

    Dosho,

    Should we start a side-Hangout?

    If you have been sitting since the top of the hour, make sure to do some kinhin. Do the same at the top of the next hour.

    VERSE OF ATONEMENT

    All harmful words, thoughts, and acts ever committed by me since of Old,

    On account of beginning-less greed, anger, and ignorance,

    Born of my body, mouth and mind,

    Now I atone for them all.

    FOUR VOWS (3x)

    To save all sentient beings, though beings numberless.

    To transform all delusions, though delusions inexhaustible.

    To perceive Reality, though Reality is boundless.

    To attain the Enlightened Way, a Way non-attainable.

    Sometimes, we need to be reminded that Zazenkai does not happen on Google Plus. It happens in the here and now. It happens in this moment, which we all share together. I see all the usual faces tonight. We sit together enough that I know what you look like and I knew that you were on a zafu beside me. I am grateful for your practice and your support.

    I set a timer and followed the schedule. Recited the Heart Sutra, the Verse of Atonement and the Four Vows. During the second period of Zazen, my little girl kitty, Echo, chanted a Sutra of her own in the hallway for me. I hope you all enjoyed that.

    Gassho,
    William

    Thank you all for your practice. Although we did not see each other, I understand that when we sit Zazen, we sit with all Buddhas and dharma ancestors, and I have never seen them either. All is Buddha! _/|\_

    Sorry about that. I tested the system twice this week, and it was working. There is something about the conditions today that were different and I need to figure out.

    Good to sit with you all. Martin, one of our sitters in Tsukuba, was also sitting with me in the Zendo today.
