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'.

First zazenkai with the Treeleaf Sangha!!!

First...I appreciate the beach wear. :) Living in San Diego, I've had many sittings at the beach.

Second...technical issues...HELP! I was able to join and add video, but my video was off. I was practicing in time with everyone else, but my video showed up later than everyone else. For example...we all bow, but the video of me doesn't show me bowing until much later. I ended up turning my video off because I didn't want to be a distraction. Any suggestions or insight into this problem?

P.S. - Jundo, a sincere, tanned Bozo the Clown sitting zazen is a thought that can not be unthought. Thank you. E

Oh, just ignore anything like that, pay it no never mind. You were fine.

I think it is like the fellows who call the talk shows on the radio, then listen to their own voice come with a bit of delay. Just ignore it, and don't look at your own image on the screen. The delay is almost non-existant, amazing since we are all across the world.

Gassho, J
