    September 3rd, 2011 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    Hi.

    This weeks Zazenkai is dedicated to all the broken hearts out there.
    Remember that an crack can be used to let the light in.

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF - for the time being, Fugen's Living Room' 90 minute ZAZENKAI', netcast LIVE from 2 pm Swedish/Paris time, 1 pm London time, New York 8am and LA 5am, Japan 9pm ... all on SATURDAY, September 3rd.)

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

    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 :

    As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in Japanese (the words are 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 below and at the following link:
    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231

    Begins with a series of rings of the small Inkin bell ••••••• followed by 3x PROSTRATIONS by EVERYONE

    Then chant of Heart Sutra inJapanese:


    INO = CHANT LEADER ONLY
    EVERYONE = ALL JOIN IN



    INO ONLY =

    Maka Hannya Haramita Shin Gyo*
    (The Heart of the Great Perfection of Wisdom Sutra in JAPANESE)

    EVERYONE =


    Kan Ji Zai Bo Satsu Gyo Jin Han Nya Ha Ra Mi Ta Ji Sho
    Ken Go* On Kai Ku Do I Sai Ku Yaku Sha Ri Shi Shiki Fu
    I Ku Ku Fu I Shiki Shiki Soku Ze Ku Ku Soku Ze Shiki Ju

    Gya Tei Ha Ra Gya Tei Hara* So Gya Tei Bo Ji Sowa Ka
    Han Nya Shin Gyo * * *

    FOLLOWED BY DEDICATION OF MERIT - READ BY INO ONLY:

    Buddha Nature pervades the whole universe, Reality, existing right here:
    In reciting THE HEART OF THE PERFECTION OF GREAT WISDOM SUTRA (and THE IDENTITY OF RELATIVE AND ABSOLUTE) we dedicate our sincere efforts to:
    •Shakyamuni Buddha Honored One; the Historical Buddha and Teacher …
    and to those ancestral teachers:
    Eihei Dogen Honored One
    Soji Keizan Honored One,
    All successive Honored Ones up until
    Renpo Niwa Honored One and
    Gudo Wafu Honored One
    and to all other Honored Ones throughout history, Male and Female Honored Ones, whose names have been forgotten or left unsaid.
    We also dedicate these efforts to the Three Treasures,
    Buddha, Dharma, Sangha,
    To all Awakened Ones and Teachers in all places and times.

    We especially seek tranquility & well being for all creatures now suffering or ill in health.
    May they be serene through all their ills.
    May their lives be at peace and Wisdom pervade the darkness of ignorance.

    We dedicate our hopes and aspirations:
    To all victims of war and terrorism
    To the injured and to all families touched by these tragedies
    To the healing of hatred in all countries and among all peoples
    To the wisdom and compassion of our world leaders
    To the peace of the world and harmony of all beings.

    Thus, let the harmful effects of words, thoughts and actions be dispelled
    and Compassion bloom in perpetual spring.
    May we all realize and live the Enlightened Way together:

    EVERYONE CHANTS:

    ø All Buddhas throughout space and time
    ø All Bodhisattvas-Mahasattvas
    ø Maha • Prajna • Paramita ••••••• (followed 3x PROSTRATIONS by EVERYONE) • • •

    BE SEATED AS INSTRUCTED

    Zazen
    kinhin
    Zazen

    Then...

    At the end of the Zazenkai, we recite the following::

    VERSE OF ATONEMENT:

    All harmful acts, words and thoughts, ever committed by me since of old,

    On account of beginningless greed, anger and ignorance,

    Born of my body, mouth and mind,

    Now I atone for them all


    FOUR VOWS (to be recited 3x , vibrant on the second, soft on the third time):

    To save all sentient beings, though beings numberless

    To transform all delusions, though delusions inexhaustible

    To perceive Reality, though Reality is boundless

    To attain the Enlightened Way, a Way non-attainable
    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!

    Thank you for the Zazenkai, as we begin Ango and Jukai preparation. All my thouights and prayers are with everyone who sits.

    Fugen, one thing...when you were away from your headset doing the various chants, I could hardly hear you even with the volume turned up all the way.

    Gassho,

Then I started to think if maybe we should get wireless microphones for you guys as well. Then I wondered why my incense was burning so strangely. Then...then...

    Then I realized I am supposed to be sitting shikantaza and not all mulling over all this other stuff. :twisted:

    Once again...it was perfect and I am truly grateful for the practice of all our priests. So very kind of you all to give of yourselves for our practice.

    Deep bows,

    Yeah Shawn, exactly it! I used the default macbook mic and cam so while okay if you are not facing the mic it sounds terrible. In Fugen's case its headphone mic designed to only pick up sound in close proximity and cancel out others (actually my macbook does that too). So proper external mic would fix the sound issue.

    Hah, no! We are very low tech. Just a $30 computer cam from the local electronics store. Yes, I did spring for a good microphone (connected to the computer by USV), but it also fails once in awhile ... explaining all our sometime "silent sittings!" ops: That and the laptops I use for the netcast, which can sometimes be overworked and less than cooperative!

    Very low budget operation, this Treeleaf.
