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'.

Remember, when we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

The laptop I was having audio issues with finally moved on from it's current life, I believe it is now a turtle named Larry, but I cant prove that.

Anyway, I have no camera on my desk top so my sits will be one way for the foreseeable future.

Hi all,

Apologies for my late arrival, but I was attending to practice nonetheless. I shall elaborate in a new thread soon.

Glad to see you Myozan...and also looking forward to sitting with you in a few weeks.

Hello

How hot is it at Treeleaf Zendo?


It's so hot at Suigó-Tsukuba National Park two trees were fighting over a dog.

This a great idea and I wish I COULD participate but 8pm on a Friday night is a bit tough for an active family. I will just play sit a longs and watch netcasts when able. Thank you so much for doing this.

Hi Clark,

There is no difference (except in the mind, where all difference and judgments are found) between the "live-live" sittings and the anytime "live-later"sittings. I look forward to sitting with you.

The seated monk smiled and said, "Tell me, where isn't Buddha?"

Time to think-non-think outside of the box!

Gassho, Jundo
