Hello All,

Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning)

... and to be visible at the following link during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

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
00:15 – 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!

Had some connection issues, but I got in just as Yugen was starting the recitation of the Heart Sutra. Thanks to all who sat or will sit later. I love to sit Zazen with the sound of Japanese birds floating in an out. Gassho, William

Thank you everyone for siting together tonight. These Friday night Zazenkai are now a very important part of my week. I would not have this opportunity without all of you and your faith in Zazen.

With Gratitude,

Arnold

Don't know if it is something wrong my end with the link but tried to access the video at 4.30 BST & again now but all that I'm viewing is Jundo speaking to someone briefly - the video lasting for about 5min?! :(

Whatever William had, he obviously gave it to me yesterday when I visited the forum [scared]. I will re-sit when this mega-headache passes [happy].

Gassho to everyone who sat, who had connection problems, and who will sit! gassho2.

Sat in my own way as the video is currently unavailable, but as we all are sitting together in our own way anyway this really isn't a problem. Gassho to you all and have a great week.

PS: Sitting in my own way is no different to zazenkai sitting... I just don't recite the dedication! :encouragement:
