    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDOŚ RETREAT!! RETREAT!! 2010

    ... Our Annual 'AT HOME' Two Day 'ALL ONLINE' ROHATSU (Buddha's Enlightenment Day) RETREAT IS COMING UP ... to be LIVE NETCAST on the weekend of December 4 and 5, 2010.

    This Retreat celebrates the 'official' closure of our ANGO (100 day Special Practice Season) at Treeleaf, is a part of current preparations for our JUKAI (Undertaking the Precepts) Ceremony in January, and marks ROHATSU ... the traditional holiday in Japan celebrating the time of the Buddha's Enlightenment.

    The schedule and content will be (with small changes) nearly the same as last year's, which you can see here (you can also watch video of each part from last year) ...

    WE ASK THAT ALL WHO PLAN TO SIT DOWNLOAD AND REVIEW THE FOLLOWING GUIDE TO SITTING THIS ONLINE RETREAT (PDF):

    YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO DOWNLOAD AND PLACE IN A BINDER OUR 30 Page CHANT BOOK FOR THE RETREAT (PDF):

    https://sites.google.com/site/jundotree ... ects=0&d=1

    I will also soon be posting LINKS TO A SERIES OF 'SIT-A-LONG' TALKS WHICH SHOULD BE LISTENED TO before the Retreat. They cover such hot topics as "How to Oryoki" "How to Bow" "How to Go To The Bathroom during a Retreat" (Really) and many others.

    TODAY'S SIT-A-LONG LOOKS AT THIS QUESTION: If there is 'nothing to attain' in Zazen ... why sit an intensive retreat at all??

    Todayĺs Sit-A-Long video follows at this link:

    REMEMBER: When we drop from mind all thought of 'now' 'then' 'here' and 'there' ... we will all be sitting together right when and where you are!

    Thank you, Jundo.
    I will be there, between all festivities here (the dutch Santa Claus celebrations) for the children on december 5.
    It will certainly make it an interesting weekend.

    Gassho,
    Ronald.
