    February 7th-8th, 2014 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    A reMIND-er that our Monthly 4-Hour Treeleaf Zazenkai has been 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.



    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

    A photo from my Dharma Bro. Peter Rocca of the Altar for Roshi's Funeral. At the families request, it was a simple funeral in traditional Japanese style, conducted by the presiding priest in the manner for a deceased Zen Priest.

    Personally, I feel that Roshi would have wanted something simple, but (as many people point out) funerals are really for the surviving family, not the fellow in the box.

    Case #29 from Master Dogen's Shinji Shobogenzo Book One

    One day Master Zengen went with his teacher Master Dogo to visit a house where someone had recently died to express their condolences. When they were alone, Master Zengen patted the coffin and said to Master Dogo, “Is he alive or dead?”

    Master Dogo said, “I will not say alive or dead.”

    Master Zengen said, “Why won’t you say?”

    Master Dogo said, “I will never say. I will never say.”

    On the way back to the temple, Master Zengen said, “Master! Please give me your answer now! If you won’t I’ll hit you!”

    Master Dogo said, “You can hit me if you want. I will not say.”

    Master Zengen hit his teacher several times with his fist, but Master Dogo still refused to answer.

    On returning to the temple, Master Dogo said, “I think it would be better for you to leave this temple. But if the Head Monk hears you are leaving it will cause trouble.”

    After Master Dogo died, Master Zengen went to the temple of Master Sekiso. He told Master Sekiso about the incident and asked him for his teaching.

    Master Sekiso said, “I will not say alive or dead.”

    Master Zengen said, “Why won’t you say.”

    Master Sekiso said, “I will never say. I will never say.”

    On hearing these words, Master Zengen finally understood.

    We have a rather special guest today for the Zazenkai (although all are special) ... a rather experienced Japanese Zen fellow who is visiting ...

    Would like all on their best behavior, and would love to see good attendance ... He might help get some more local folks to attend in the future.

    Thanks everyone. Was a bit rusty with my chanting (forgot my usual breathing spots), but not too bad.

    Deep bows to all who sat, are sitting, or will sit.
