FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED FOR FUTURE WEEKS. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication
00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS & VERSE OF ATONEMENT

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 about 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 Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

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!

Thank you Jundo and everyone who sat and will sit. Was wonderful. Seems Google + didn't like me at the end there and gave me the boot ... oh well ... was wonderful none the less. :)

Thanks for this week's zazenkai. I tried to join again. I can see the hangout on the page, but I am still unable to find any means of joining. Hrm.

Thanks everyone!

richss-There should be a blue button that says "Join Hangout", but it would seem you are not seeing it. If you try to start a new hangout, it should tell you that there is already one running (which you can then choose to join). See if that helps and I'll try to think of other possibilities...this one is perplexing!

Gassho,
Dosho

I've been looking, but I just don't see the blue Join option. I tried during the Kinhin portion to jump on doing the second method and instead I got "Inviting..." message, so I canceled. I'm sure we'll figure it out eventually.

Gassho,

Richard

Thank you to all who sat / will sit.

This zazenkai was very special because I sat with Chris, and through the magic of Hangouts we were able to play the recorded version simultaneously for both.

It's impressive how far technology has come and I feel really grateful with the countless engineers and creative people who have worked to get us here.

Gassho,

Kyonin

Yes, thank you to all that sit.

Thank you Jundo for always sitting with us.

Thank you Kyonin for sharing your Zazenkai sit with me.

It's easy to take for granted so many of the technology tools we use today. We owe a great deal of gratitude to all of the enormous minds (and efforts) that have made it their life to orchestrate all of these conveniences. This ones for the geeks.

Gassho.
