    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Home for the Holidays!

    I am in China today, where Youtube is banned ... so I am not sure if I can post today's sitting or not ....

    But I would like to wish each and all members of Treeleaf, and our "Sit-a-Long" family, a Peaceful Rohatsu, Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah ...

    .... as well as All the Happy Holidays of Peace and Goodwill, whenever and whatever they are ...

    ... and a Very Tranquil and Content 'Just This Very Moment' too, ever new and changing ...


    This also leads to a related topic ...

    Heading home to see family and friends always presents a few special "opportunities for Practice" at this time of year ...

    Meeting family and old friends ... how do you explain to them about "being a Buddhist"?

    You may even start to feel a little guilty for not being part of the religion you were raised in.

    How should we celebrate the holidays with friends and family?

    My answer: Sing all the songs, be with the ones we love ... Celebrate Peace & Joy!

    Today’s Sit-A-Long video follows at this link. Remember: recording ends soon after the beginning bells; a sitting time of 15 to 35 minutes is recommended

    Thank you Jundo,

    After listening to your talk, am going to feel less of an alien when I get dragged to the Sikh temple every week!

    May all at treeleaf have a joyous and peaceful Christmas and new year.

    You are great Jundo! Thanks for sharing.

    I love the idea of turning the rohatsu into a family event. Keep us posted about that.

    This Xmas I'm going to work on a koan: how do you silently sing "Silent Night"? :lol:

    You really made me smile with this talk and for that I thank you, Jundo San.

    I totally agree. Sometimes we forget that our own mental blocks get in the way of enjoying the holidays.

    And now I will perform for you Silent Night....

    Happy Holidays to you and your even bigger family.

    I, too, like the idea of making the Buddhist holidays more family-friendly.

    Thanks,
