    December 25th, 2010 Friday/Saturday 'HO HO HO' Zazenkai

    HO HO HO, MERRY RIGHT THIS MOMENT!

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS (ALL OF THEM) TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!


    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE TODAY 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 ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at USTREAM:

    http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sit-a-long-with-jundo

    But FEAR NOT if not possible for you to join 'live' in your location at those times, as the entire sitting is recorded in 'REAL TIME' and available for full participation 'on demand' at any time after that, no different from the 'live' sitting :

    'REAL TIME' recorded 'ANY TIME' version link is here:

    http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/11622582

    OUR 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:


    00:00 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) 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 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 words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:

    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231

    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!

    Wanted to make this my first Treeleaf Zazenkai but, alas, the timing wasn't good with holiday travels. I hope to sit with everyone next time. I have not done the chanting/bowing aspects before, so looking forward to bringing that into my practice.

    Cheers,
    Matt
