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:

00:55 – 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!

Assuming that Google + gives me a hangout link, I will also be there live. If I cannot join the hangout again, I will watch the live feed.

Hi William,

A few days ago the only way to join a hangout was by clicking on "Hangouts" (or was it the Notifications symbol?) on the right sidebar. All of a sudden a link for joining the hangout finally popped up.
Maybe you can try this in case you encounter problems.

I personally will sit - as usual - with the recorded version, as it is too late for me.

Gassho,

Timo

Thank you all who sat/will sit.

This was a very interesting zazenkai because in the second sitting Jundo's cat in Japan visited the Zendo and started meowing. My cat here in Mexico listened and started to look for him and responded to the call!

I never thought a Mexican cat would understand a Japanese cat :)

Languages and frontiers are only a human invention.

Anyway. Have a great weekend everyone!

Thanks to all who sat and all who will. I got confused about the cat as mine often scratches the door of the meditation room. I hope you didn't cut the cat in half Jundo! Bows to all

Kyonin, my three kitties had the same reaction. Jundo's cat has a deep, deep voice. But, I just sat, as previously instructed by Jundo, to avoid being "caught by the cat."
