A SPECIAL 2-Hour "LIVE FROM TREELEAF' Real-Time Zazenkai -- Celebrating the First Day of Jukai Study!

| No Comments


Welcome to our Special "Live from Treeleaf" Zazen marking the FIRST DAY (although really without beginning or end) of our Jukai (Undertaking the Precepts) Study and Preparations. 

Please note the Rev. Taigu, who was supposed to lead things today, is sick and unable to make the trip. Our thoughts to him, and we will see him soon.
In the meantime, Jundo will be the "emergency relief pitcher"


We start with 3 floor prostrations (or deep Gassho), then chant the Heart Sutra in ENGLISH (see below), then sit about 40 minutes of Zazen, then 10 minutes of Kinhin, a little talk, Zazen, closing with the chants of Metta, the "Verse of Atonement" and "Four Vows". Please join in, one and all.

Our special sitting schedule today will be approximately as follows ...

00:00 - 00:50 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA) & ZAZEN
00:50 - 01:00 KINHIN
01:00 - 01:40 DHARMA TALK & ZAZEN
01:40 - 01:45 SHORT KINHIN
01:45 - 02:00 METTA CHANT & ZAZEN, VERSE OF ATONEMENT, FOUR VOWS, & CLOSING

Gassho, Jundo
