NOTE: We have ... just out of the box ...A NEW COMPUTER! ... with enough capacity to handle our new Hi-Definition Camera (donated to us a few weeks ago) and our Samson Microphone ... HOWEVER, DUE TO MY FOOLISH MISTAKE PERHAPS, I STILL BROKE THE VIDEO INTO THREE SEGMENTS THIS WEEK!

00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN

As you can see, our Zazenkai consists of chanting the 'Heart Sutra' in English (the words are at the link below), some full floor prostrations in sets of three (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), followed by our Dedication, Zazen twice for 30 minutes each, with 10 minutes of Kinhin in between, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.
Please download and print out the words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:
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!
