FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS ARE POSTED AT THIS LINK (http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showthread.php?10200-How-to-Join-GOOGLE-for-Zazenkai). WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG VIA THE ABOVE SCREEN. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

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!

I am currently engaged in the second day of Rohatsu with Shujin. We'll be sitting until about 10:30 PM tonight, so I'll have to sit this zazenkai on the recorded version. It will have to be on early Sunday morning :(

I think that sitting Rohatsu with Shujin is sitting with us at Zazenkai. So you see, Zazen affords the miraculous power to be two and all places at once! :buddha:

Perfectly good Kinhin when that is what it must be. Just fold sincerely and carefully to make all the shirts neat and straight, all while dropping all thoughts of straight vs. crooked.

Thank you Jundo and all who sat live today. This was my first zazenkai, and I felt like I was with you all, despite having used the recorded version. Today you were my teachers :)

Thank you, Sandworm. Nice sitting with you this first time.

Might I ask a favor though, would you look over here about posting some face (the visible kind) with the name? Item 4  ...
