    Jan 31th-Feb 1st, 2014 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai - for Nishijima Roshi

    NOTE: Our Monthly 4-Hour Treeleaf Zazenkai will be moved to February 15th in commemoration of Buddha's Parinirvana Day and to mark the passing of our Teacher, Gudo Wafu Nishijima. Today's sitting is also dedicated to Nishijima Roshi, as well as other friends now experiencing hard days.



    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):

    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'll be there. Room for kinhin in the basement now too. Unless it floods, which it has a habit of doing. In that case... swimming kinhin.

    Let me also note that a lovely small calligraphy was donated by our Shokai, and will be kept in our Zendo from now on. It will be featured as well during today's Zazenkai. It is from the Heart Sutra, and reads ...

    ... 無罣礙 ... no attachments nor hindrances ...

    Let us dedicate it to Shokai's wife, Lillian, who is in hospital today ...

    Shingen,

    Thank you for the invite, but for some reason I didn't get it.

    Google+ is a mystery. Just like life itself.

    Great zazenkai Sat invisibly but it was still wonderful. Didn't know I could be invisible... I vow to use this power for the good of all sentient beings. Anyway, thank you.

    Well, last week we all got in but Shingen could not. This week, Google+ decided to balance the scales.

    Lovely Zazenkai. Thanks to Jundo and to all who sat along with the live feed.

    Thank you all for your practice. Deep gratitude for Sawaki Roshi, Nishijima Roshi, our teachers, this Sangha, and all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas throughout space and time! Much love and Metta for Nishijima's family, friends, and students and to Lillian and Shokai.

    How different we each are, and how varied our difficulties, and yet how connected we all are, even in our darkest hour.

    Nine bows to all.

    Well, you guys were there in heart.

    This week, I invited the "Treeleaf Sangha" Circle at the beginning (and again during Kinhin). Check you Junk box to see if the invitations are landing there.

    Also, I notice on Youtube that Michael's face in not visible at the bottom of the screen even though I could see him during the Hangout.

    All good!

    Glad I could watch the live feed at least. You are all in my heart anyway, so no need to actually see you every time.


    Despite those sad times, try to enjoy your weekend...

    Thanks to all who sat, are sitting and will sit. Was it a little shorter today or was just a glitch in the G+ timing? Jundo I liked your chanting! Deep Bows to Nishijima Roshi and much Love to Shokai and Lillian. Hope all is well.
