    October 8th, 2011 Treeleaf Weekly Zazenkai

    Hello All,

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning))

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

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at JUSTIN.TV:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN

    http://www.justin.tv/treeleafzen

    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:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN



    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!


    Gassho, Jundo

    So all you Google+ people .. I've signed up for it and have some of you in my circle; what should I do before I start the sitting tonight to meet you there? :?:

    Hi Nindo,

    Click the "Start a Hangout" button on the right hand column of G+. Once it loads that page, you should see a list of anyone in your Circle who has already started a hangout. You can then join in. Or, if no one has started one yet, you can start one yourself, and they can then join you.

    You can also invite people from the Hangout page. Or if someone has invited you, and you try to start your own, it will let you know so you can just join the one already started.

    Hope that helps!

    Hi Ray,

    First of all, you do not need Google+ to join the Zazenkai, which takes place in a little over 6 hours from now (times are listed for various time zones). Use the link above to join the broadcast at justin.tv at the appropriate time or watch the recorded version at a later time (Jundo will post links).

    As for the various sittings people have posted on the schedule, you need to add these folks to your "circles" and the quickest way to do that is to join the "Treeleaf Sangha" profile that most of the Treeleafers on Google+ are connected to. When you are on the main page for Google+ there is a box at the top that says "Search Google+" and in that box type "Treeleaf Sangha".

    Hope that helps!

    Gassho,
    Dosho

    So sorry I forgot today was Friday! Came in from working on a tortoise table in the garage for dinner when it hit me.

    Will have to sit this one in the morning.

    Hope it went well.
