    June 6th-7th, 2014 - OUR MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI!

    THE LITTLE TALK TODAY WILL BE ON THREE KOANS OF 'THE BOOK OF SERENITY', BELOW IN THIS THREAD.

    Dear All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE 8am to noon Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 7pm to 11pm, Los Angeles 4pm to 8pm (Friday night), London midnight to 4am and Paris 1am to 5am (early Saturday morning)) ...

    ... to be visible at the following link during those times and 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:

    The Sitting Schedule is as follows;

    00:00 - 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA / SANDOKAI IN ENGLISH) & ZAZEN
    00:50 - 01:00 KINHIN
    01:00 - 01:30 ZAZEN
    01:30 - 01:50 KINHIN

    01:50 - 02:30 DHARMA TALK & ZAZEN
    02:30 - 02:40 KINHIN

    02:40 - 03:15 ZAZEN
    03:15 - 03:30 KINHIN
    03:30 - 04:00 METTA CHANT & ZAZEN, VERSE OF ATONEMENT, FOUR VOWS, & CLOSING



    Our Zazenkai consists of our chanting the 'Heart Sutra' and the 'Identity of Relative and Absolute (Sandokai)' in English (please download our Chant Book at the link below), some full floor prostrations (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), a little talk by me ... and we close with the 'Metta Chant', followed at the end with the 'Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'. Oh, and lots and lots of Zazen and walkin' Kinhin in between!

    Please download and print out the Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

    Chant Book (PDF)

    or

    Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML)

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU POSITION YOUR ZAFU ON THE FLOOR IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STARING DIRECTLY AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, BUT CAN GLANCE OVER AND SEE THE SCREEN WHEN NECESSARY. YOUR ZAFU SHOULD ALSO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE COMPUTER SCREEN WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE ZAFU FOR THE CEREMONIES, AND HAVE ROOM FOR BOWING AND KINHIN.

    ALSO, REMEMBER TO SET YOUR COMPUTER (& SCREEN SAVER) SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHUT OFF DURING THE 4 HOURS.


    I hope you will join us ... an open Zafu is waiting. When we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

    The little talk today will be on three Koans of the 'Book of Serenity', being sailed in our 'Beyond Words & Letters Book Club' ...

    http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/forum...TERS-BOOK-CLUB

    Also, something of the sailing films and stories below ...



    Are they three separate Koans? One Koan? Others' Stories? Our Story? This too is a Koan!

    http://books.google.co.jp/books?id=i...0Black&f=false

    http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showt...NIMITY-Case-40



    I will be referencing this recent sailing movie, pretty good by the way ...

    ‘All Is Lost,’ With Robert Redford
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/18/mo...-sea.html?_r=0

    ... and also this 'real life' sailing story, in the news some weeks ago, of a sick baby and a sinking sailboat far out at sea (the story is told during the first 20 minutes here, from the US public radio show This American Life) ...

    http://audio.thisamericanlife.org/jo...shouse/525.mp3
    http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radi...525/transcript



    ... and this passage from Master Dogen's Shobogenzo-Zenki (The Whole Works) ...

    Life can be likened to a time when a person is sailing in a boat.
    On this boat, I am operating the sail, I have taken the rudder, I am pushing
    the pole; at the same time, the boat is carrying me, and there is no “I” beyond
    the boat. Through my sailing of the boat, this boat is being caused to be a
    boat—let us consider, and learn in practice, just this moment of the present.
    At this very moment, there is nothing other than the world of the boat: the
    sky, the water, the shore have all become the moment of the boat, which is
    utterly different from moments not on the boat. So life is what I am making
    it, and I am what life is making me. While I am sailing in the boat, my body
    and mind and circumstances and self are all essential parts5 of the boat; and
    the whole earth and the whole of space are all essential parts of the boat.
    What has been described like this is that life is the self, and the self is life.

    I have to attend my niece's graduation ceremony this evening and will likely miss the first half. I am hoping to be home and on my Zafu in time for the Dharma talk and the second half. If not, I will sit with the recording.

    Thank you everyone, it was a great sitting.... so, back to chopping wood and carrying water, just remember, DO NOT CHOP THE MAST, DO NOT SPILL THE WATER INSIDE THE BOAT

    It is great to sail with you guys and girls

    Thank you all who sat and will sit.

    And special thanks to the old router, a big part of our zendo.

    Now lets sail the seas and see what the horizon has in store for us.

    Thank you, Jundo, and to everyone that participated. I wasn't able to participate live, hopefully I'll be able to in the future.

    Dear Sangha just so you know I am here if peripherally...I do sit the Zazenkai's mid week or later in the weekend as the house allows. Me and my wife have my daugheter and her 2 sons: Lucas 4 and Jimmy-one-sock 1.4 leaving with us..so this house literally rocks. Sadness and a dark year past is turning to sunshine and happy noise....it will change again of that we are sure, but there is comfort on that now.
    I think this sangha is stronger than ever and the quality of the population is quite high, committed.
    In deepest gassho to Jundo, Taigu and the Treeleaf Sangha!
