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!

I may or may not be there live. I am heading to Vancouver to see my granny, but have a truck repair I have to fix first, so we will see. =)

The invitation issue was because of the setup for jukai (and constant G+ changes), so it shouldn't have any effect here.


I will be there, hopefully live. And hopefully, the invitation process is working now.

Thank you all for your practice!

Re: evil karma vs harmful words thoughts and acts - I've often wondered why we switch around on this wording (tea party is "evil karma", Zazenkai is "harmful words"' etc.). Should we basically always use the latter wording?

Thank you all again. Wonderful Zazenkai!

Gassho,
Sekishi / Eric

Thank you everyone!

Eric: As Jundo said, the wording was changed about a year ago and hasn't been changed in all posts and threads. I will remind Fugen or ask Seimyo to change it for the tea party thread, so it's good you mentioned that aspect.

Gassho,
Dosho

Thank you Dosho, I wasn't sure if there was a significance to the fact that the older one was still used sometimes. No big deal either way -- the intention is the same!

The PDF version of the chant book still lists it as "evil karma" as well.
