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!

Provided that my Google issues are all resolved and my recent hacking problems do not prevent it, I will be there live as well.

So, am the only one who stopped and looked for the loud bird (or whatever made that loud noise) in the middle of kinhin? I swear it was in my living room for a minute while I was walking out the room.

I sat along Sunday with 5 others at the Bodhi Tree Cafe. The audio was very low and I missed the bell a couple of times, but my natural timer kicked in so we were within a few seconds of you Jundo. Thank you.

Yes, we are in different time Zones but (Einstein aside), 30 minutes here is 30 minutes there.

Nice have you all together.
