    June 2nd, 2012- OUR MONTHLY 4-hour ZAZENKAI!

    Dear All,

    NOTE: OUR FIRST SITTING TODAY IS 10 MINUTES SHORTER THAN THE SCHEDULE DUE TO TECHNICAL NON-PROBLEMS. THE FIRST ZAZEN IS ABOUT 10 MINUTES SHORTER THAN USUAL.

    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 / SANDOKAI IN ENGLISH) & 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

    Thank you Jundo! It's been awhile since I've participated in the full 4 hour Zazenkai, so I have to admit I took a break :cry: before the 3rd session began. I thank you for your Koan explanations, they were very non-thought provoking. I hope your nieces fellow survived without any permanent damage. j/k

    Gassho,

    Chuck

    Thank you to all who sat and will be sitting
    And, Jundo, thank you for your skillful means of teaching us beginners. You reminded me of when i used to tell the kids to listen to the radio in their head when they asked to use their walkman* when camping. Also remember, when you turn the soil to kill the weeds, you cultivate all the seeds in that soil. :roll: :lol:

    * What's an Ipod? :shock: 8)

    I've been wondering . . . where is the "sound of one hand clapping" koan, anyway? Or the "if a tree falls in the forest and there's no one there to hear it, does it make a sound" one? I've never come across either of them in a book of koans.

    Anyway, thanks to all who sat, or will.

    Hi Jen,

    I believe that "what is the sound of one hand clapping" is actually a Koan created by the great Rinzai Master Hakuin, although he did not use that exact phrase ...


    The master wrote about "one hand" and Kannon Bosatsu, or Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva as depicted in Japan -- "'Kannon' means to observe a sound. It is the sound of one hand. If you understand this point you will be awakened. When your eyes can see, the whole world is Kannon."

    He also said, "When you hear for yourself the voice of One Hand, whatever you are doing, whether enjoying a bowl of rice or sipping a cup of tea, all of it you do in the samadhi of living with one bestowed with the buddha-mind."

    http://buddhism.about.com/od/whoswhoinb ... hakuin.htm
    'Tis (as Taigu recently wrote) a "soundless sound" ... the sound heard by the ears without ears ... the sound you hear everywhere yet without a "you" to hear "it" ...

    The other question, however, about "a tree falling in the forest" is not a Koan by origin... but just a Western philosophical conundrum, only a little more serious than "if my dog meows, is it my cat"?.
