    Thanks to all. I am going to watch the recording now to make sure I did not miss anything. Congratulations to my fellow participants and deep bows to the witnesses, to Jundo and to Taigu.

    And, just so you know Jundo, Treena is from Canada, not the U.S.

    lol, yes that is true. No boundaries, no borders though, right And, in his defense, I only live a short ways from the border so he wasn't too far off

    Hello,

    Congratulations and welcome to community of the children of Buddha. I am glad to have been able be a witness of this beautiful and touching ceremony.

    Thank you Jundo, Taigu and all of you sangha members for this wonderful ceremony. Now let us lead this life!

    I just sat along with the recording to fill in the parts I missed. Now it properly feels like I have taken Jukai. A beautiful ceremony.

    Thank you so much to all of you who were with us and all who were not.

    Thank you all. Deep bows you all of you.

    Passing through this gate, a journey begins as children of Buddha. Wearing the Tathagata's teachings, may we manifest enlightenment in the world.

    Thank you everyone for sharing this beautiful ceremony. It is the sixth Treeleaf Jukai that I have witnessed and each has its special memories. It is very heart warming to see you enjoying you commitments. I look forward to sitting with you.

    Hi there,

    I have just come back from a family birthday party - two reasons to celebrate today, what a happy coincidence!
    Room still filled with scent from incense, Buddha and leaf still in front of me, memories still fresh.

    I truly enjoyed the whole ceremony, time flew by, and it was so nice to be with you all. I felt as if we were really physically together in one room.
    Thanks to the speakers, Jundo, Taigu, all the Unsui and all others who helped making the whole Jukai experience so unique and beautiful - and another deep bow goes to Seimyo for making the quick user name changes!

    Thank you all and Gassho,

    i also sat with the recording this afternoon to fill in the portions I missed, most of which were early in the ceremony. I really liked touching a pine sprig to my head. I may make that a habit (although the broken pine needle on the Maneki probably fills the same purpose).

    Gassho,

    Welcome to all!!! It is a joy to walk this walk and get the scent of wet autumn leaves and plum blossoms.
    I am especially glad to see that the tradition of sewing is getting through Treeleaf and the right method has been transmitted.

    That is okay. There is a little known Treaty between the U.S. and Canada that covers the efficacy of Jukai cross-border. Same in the E.U. So we are covered.

    Sorry about that.

    This is really forgetting here and there!

    Yes, thank you again Seimyo!

    And might I ask our folks with new Dharma Names to continue to sign their posts and messages with the earthly name too? At least for awhile so that we can keep track of who is who. **

    Jundo;
    Glad to hear about the little known treaty. Now, can you find something that could void the need of a token every time I visit

    Now I have done the ceremony with the recording to fill in the gapless gaps.


    Who was that guy dropping in and out the whole time?
