Please 'SIT-A-LONG with DOKAN' (and my son Leon for a little bit) to welcome Dokan to Japan and Treeleaf!
Today's sitting is abbreviated, consisting of our Heart Sutra and Dedication, then one period of Zazen (about 30 minutes), then a brief period of Kinhin, then recitation of the Verse of Atonement and Four Vows.
So, WELCOME DOKAN! He's going to stay here in Tsukuba until Friday, then is off to Kyoto to play his Shakuhachi and see Taigu too. He will be coming back here on his return leg.
Today's sitting is also in celebration of our Treeleaf 'Shukke Tokudo' Ordination tomorrow.
