    February 26th, 2011 Weekly Zazenkai

    Hi,

    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:



    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!

    I will be attempting to watch the stream and sit in the zen hall at the same time for anyone else who might wish to join in. It hasn't worked for me in the past but I've upped my RAM significantly so I'm hoping my computer will be able to keep up. Either way, I'll be there live tonight...seen or unseen.

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    no camping this weekend, so i'll be there live, in the hall, if the wifi gods cooperate -- if someone has a good connection, perhaps they could leave their mike on? -- that way, they will broadcast the audio of jundo -- for those of us whose connection doesn't allow us to do both

    gassho, roky

    Thanks, Jundo! Very glad to be able to attend my first live Zazenkai as a Treeleafer!

    And thanks to Hogo, Roky, and Dosho for the live Zen Hall session too. That was my first time trying it out and it seems like my finicky laptop worked pretty well.

    Gassho, all!

    Thank you Jundo, and everyone who sat, and will sit, and to those who sat in the zen hall. Great to see so many live this week, and new friends in Japan? if I saw right.

    Aah spring is in the air(below zero in Minnesota)! Proven by the occasional chatter of ravens outside Jundo's Zendo. A welcome sound which makes me long for a return to Japan!!
    Thank you Jundo Sensei for the sitting. Hope you made it out for that bike ride! Thank you to all fellow sitters past, present and future as well.

    Gassho,
    John

    well, jundo came in great, but oovoo was not stable, i'm sure a local wifi issue here, so gave up on the hall

    oovoo is fine in the morning when i'm alone in it -- hope this doesn't mean its ok until someone else joins in :roll:

    thanks jundo

    Yep, srping is in the air and weather here is great. Blue sky, shiny sun and I am wearing my cargo shorts.

    Thank you Jundo Sensei. It was a great experience. Looking forward for next week.

    Beautiful spring morning when I started, by the end of a very good zazenkai, back to wet and windy. At least you can never get bored with the weather here in England :lol:

    Gassho to all who sat.

    Nice to hear the birds call. We just got a fresh dump of snow here, -16C, spring will be a long time to come.
