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 will be sitting in Fenway Park in Boston(without a Zafu) watching the Indians play the Red Sox. Back in Tallahassee on Sunday, so I will sit this one Sunday afternoon and then join in Sunday evening for our special guest Zazenkai. Best wishes to all.

Gassho,
William

PS: As a former Boston resident, let me just chime in with Dosho's 'Go Sox!' [jedi] ... (there's no baseball icon ... just pretend it's a bat!)

my laptop crapped out a little after the last zazen, so I had to freestyle shinkantza it out! also, a couple days ago, I attended a zendo for my first time and now I get so hung up on posture during shikantaza. but on the good side, now atleast I know whats going on with the bowing, stupas, bells, gasshos, chants, sutras, etc.
