    April 25th-26th, 2014 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    Re-MINDer: Our Heart Sutra today will be the be music by our old member Will.

    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
    00:45 – 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!

    Hi,

    Our Heart Sutra today will be music by our old member Will (Hi Will!). Our Japanese guests called to say they could not come today, and the version by Gary Dyson I was going to play only gave silence when I hit play (perhaps the most profound Heart Sutra of all)!

    Here is a link to Will's lovely interpretation ... This always just carries me away when I hear ...

    Raindrops fell on the roof. Bells rang in Mexico. Crows called in Japan. Where are those who sat?

    Thank you all for your practice.

    I sat in Victoria Point in Queensland, Australia. It was my first time sitting with Treeleaf in real time and I enjoyed it very much.

    I confess to having a bit of a bop to the Heart Sutra. No-one was around to tell me not to so....

    Thanks, everybody.

    No reason not to dance, every reason to dance the Heart Sutra.

    I danced with every part of me not on camera - the tree frogs, the great ocean, the moon and all the stars and planets. And my feet, definitely my tapping feet!

    Thanks to all who sat and will sit. Also enjoyed the chant. Gilly, knock yourself out in Queensland.
    And good night Wil Barry wherever you are. Hope to see you back at Treeleaf someday.
