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'.

Hi all,
Hope to make it, but depends on kids. My second boy has the chickenpox now! So, he's miserable and needs loads of attention. Hopefully won't get any complications like Arthur did. Will sit live or live tomorrow.

Hello All.

Thank you for zazenkai. I was there, but not on screen....as I hadn't quite figured out how to get the camera on before things got rolling.

Thanks Matt. The local doctor hospitalised my second son today. So, more drama from the Kilroy corner, I'm afraid.

Not too serious this time. Not like the other guy. But he was just refusing liquids and was badly dehydrated. Nothing IV fluids can't sort out.

The trip our family will never forget! Plus $30,000 in medical bills (the insurance should cover most of that though).

The capping verse of this koan: ALWAYS GET TRAVEL INSURANCE!!!

Thanks all. Amen to sitting for all medical professionals. Everyone we met took their Hippocratic Oath to heart, absolutely wonderful people in Norwalk Hospital, Connecticut. The hand of Kannon was their hand in action. Kindness and care personified. The warmest, enduring affection we will all have for all these people we met in America, people that were there when we needed them most.

I noticed a good deal of (Jimi Hendrixish)feedback at the beginning of this broadcast. Is it the equipment or am I doing something wrong. Anyone else have it? As a result I couldn't clearly here what Jundo had to say about future broadcasts over the next few weeks; while he is in Korea will someone be taking over?

Thanks Clark

Clark,

There is always a little feedback, but it doesn't usually lead to Jundo not coming through clearly. I too had difficulty understanding him though, so it wasn't just you.

And, yes, one of the unsui will be leading the next sitting.

Gassho,
Dosho
