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:

00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication

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!

I will try to be there live. With the whole family snowed in, it may be difficult. Sometimes they don't approve of my "just sitting around doing nothing". LOl, but if I can get the computer and a room to my non-self, I'll see you there!

DUE TO TECHNICAL 'NON-DIFFICULTIES' THE NETCAST DROPPED MIDWAY, the first time I believe that has happened with Google+. Oh well. I have posted a "pastlessly past" resit of a prior Zazenkai.

Kyonin said, Sorry Jundo was disconnected.

We are never disconnected even when disconnected! :)gassho2

I think I got disconnected before we got disconnected (or maybe not, it's hard to say) Either way, a little heart sutra and zazen is better than no zazen at all!
