    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

    Wow - that was lovely.

    The new camera is 8) Not just visually - but clarity of sound - travelling with the bell - all the external sounds - great!
    Wonderful feeling of presence.

    ..... and I'd really like a copy of Will's version of The Heart Sutra

    Thank you

    A very late birthday greeting to Taigu (who has the same birthday as my older brother, btw). I also want a copy of Will's Heart Sutra. 8) I've been dreaming of recording a version of the Heart Sutra ever since I saw the pop and hardcore Hatsune Miku versions on YouTube.

    Happy Birthday Taigu, thank you Jundo, and thank you Will.
    The picture and sound were excellent from the new camera, I used my new zafu for the first time today, we were truly sitting in style.
    with gratitude
