    and through a Ustream live netcast here starting shortly before sitting time ...

    Thank you Jundo - that was the best Zazenkai for me so far.

    Really enjoyed your talk, which rang many bells after an irritating working week, and you gave free sex education advice as well - what more could a guy ask for . Also enjoyed your reading of Dogen's instructions - after sitting for nigh on 3.5 hrs, that was like dropping a stone in still pond - lovely.

    Right knee gave me gip at 3hrs & 15 minutes - so moved to kneeling.

    Technology - ustream constant. McBeam - flaky, microphone - great.

    All in all a rewarding afternoon & just what I needed. Thank you so much.

    Kind regards

    So I'm like in the sitting room like. And I'm tryin to get my mic to work and stuff. And like everyone simultaneously logs off like. And so I'm stuck there like waiting for Jundo to come back and stuff. Anyway, long story short. I played finger puppets with the camera.

    Thanks for the Zazenkai. It was pleasure.

    Jools. seriously. Do something with that knee. geesh.

    Just kidding. Try a cushion.

    Re: REMINDER: Monthly Zazenkai Saturday

    well, did have some technical difficulties, but was able to see/listen to jundo on ustream no problem -- no sound on mebeam, but i think i may have had it silenced -- half way through lost the zen hall, and couldn't even get back to treeleaf.org, for about 1/2 hr. -- but finally did

    lots of sex/ hold the hamburger -- sounds like jukai is just right for me

    the mebeam forum hasn't been much help, but thanks to charles for figuring out that it is a 5 minute limit on solo visits to zen hall, but that i can get around this by entering with 2 computers -- tried that approach before todays big sit, and it worked great -- mebeam, though, doesn't seem to acknowledge any programming to this effect -- is it possible that treeleaf has chosen this option?

    thanks jundo

    I lost my browser halfway through the second Zazen and I guess because Jundo is doing so well with Treeleaf that the sites bandwidth was well used and I could not make it back.

    In the beginning the sound was very good but in the middle of chanting the Heart sutra the sound dropped and it just never made it back. I could hear a little with the volume turned all the way up but not very well. I had the ustream up in another window with the same results.

    I don't know... But I had a good time anyway

    I guess the rule of thumb is once your in... STAY IN! Otherwise you will have to watch later.

    Thanks Jundo and everybody else,
    Gassho,
    Damian

    Oh that was you, Jools. I recognized everyone but you. Maybe it was the camera angle but I couldn't figure you out. :lol:

    Anyway, great zazenkai. Made another breakthrough I think. I'll start a thread.

    Hi,

    I thought just plugging in the new microphone would solve the issue, but apparently not ...

    ... Our Sangha's just a big zen-tech experiment, so it is all a Koan.

    Hey Charles you might have missed me. I was going by Chinese time, but the schedule was not.

    Dear Jundo

    thank you very much for today's Zazenkai. I didn't bother with Mcbeam and went straight for Ustream, and that worked really well - good picture & sound.

    I especially enjoyed you dharma talk on the nature of a sangha, forgiveness & metta practice. But, best of all I enjoyed the noise of the Japanese crickets, who complimented the wind & driving rain of an English autumnal storm. I also enjoyed your reading of Fukan Zazengi, those words really resonate after nigh on 3.5 hours of sitting.

    As always, thanks for all your efforts. As you say what a great way to start the month.
