    April 7th, 2012- OUR MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI!

    Dear All,

    In reflection of VESAK, THE BUDDHA'S NON-BIRTHDAY (known as Hana Matsuri in Japan, and traditionally celebrated there on April 8th although other days in other Buddhist countries ... AS A NON-BIRTHDAY, NEVER TOO MANY!) ...

    Please 'sit-a-long' with our MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE 8am to noon Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 7pm to 11pm, Los Angeles 4pm to 8pm (Friday night), London midnight to 4am and Paris 1am to 5am (early Saturday morning)) ... and 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 . Just click then on the links below:

    THE 'REAL TIME, ANY TIME' recorded version is divided into 3 parts as follows (click on the links) :

    00:00 - 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA / DAI HI SHIN DHARANI IN JAPANESE) & ZAZEN
    00:50 - 01:00 KINHIN
    01:00 - 01:30 ZAZEN
    01:30 - 01:50 KINHIN
    ZAZENKAI PART I LINK:

    [youtube] [/youtube]

    01:50 - 02:30 DHARMA TALK & ZAZEN
    02:30 - 02:40 KINHIN
    TALK & ZAZEN PART 2 LINK:
    [youtube] [/youtube]

    02:40 - 03:15 ZAZEN
    03:15 - 03:30 KINHIN
    03:30 - 04:00 METTA CHANT & ZAZEN, VERSE OF ATONEMENT, FOUR VOWS, & CLOSING
    ZAZENKAI PART 3 LINK:
    [youtube] [/youtube]

    Our Zazenkai consists of our chanting the 'Heart Sutra' and the 'Identity of Relative and Absolute (Sandokai)' in English (please download our Chant Book at the link below), some full floor prostrations (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), a little talk by me ... and we close with the 'Metta Chant', followed at the end with the 'Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'. Oh, and lots and lots of Zazen and walkin' Kinhin in between!

    Please download and print out the Chant Book (PDF) at the following link:

    viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231

    I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU POSITION YOUR ZAFU ON THE FLOOR IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STARING DIRECTLY AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, BUT CAN GLANCE OVER AND SEE THE SCREEN WHEN NECESSARY. YOUR ZAFU SHOULD ALSO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE COMPUTER SCREEN WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE ZAFU FOR THE CEREMONIES, AND HAVE ROOM FOR BOWING AND KINHIN.

    ALSO, REMEMBER TO SET YOUR COMPUTER (& SCREEN SAVER) SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHUT OFF DURING THE 4 HOURS.


    I hope you will join us ... an open Zafu is waiting. When we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

    Gassho, Jundo

    Wonderful zazenkai. Had planned to split it but did the whole thing except for the first half hour cause I thought it started at 8pmNY time. anyway due to a back injury the only thing I can do back pain free is sit zazen and lay down. So please excuse my substituion of lying down during kinhin

    Wonderful sit and an absolutely amazing dharma talk....thank you for your continued support of our practice Taigu.

    During the sit my mind wandered down a poetic path so I'd thought I'd share...

    Adrift in the misty fog of the mind's ocean,
    Waves of perception crash relentlessly on reality's shore.
    Buddha Dharma in each droplet, each grain.
    I drown.

    Last but not least is the Dharma talk up on Podcast (see URL in my signature below).

    Gassho,

    Dokan

    Taigu and all,

    I just sat this zazenkai tonight and am most grateful to Taigu for his teachings and also to all who sat, are sitting, or will sit.

    Incidently, it was my first time sitting with a kesa...I am again, most grateful.

    Thank you all!

    Gassho,
    Dosho
