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):

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

PLEASE NOTE:

I believe that the time for the zazenkai listed in Jundo's message above is incorrect for North America and, if so, should say 8pm NY and 5pm LA. I am not sure about Europe as at least some countries have not begun DST as yet. I wrote to Jundo to confirm the time change, but I gather (and hope) he is sound asleep. :)

And, if I am wrong (time changes make my brain hurt) I apologize for leading you astray.

Gassho,
Dosho

Hey Dosho ... the last time I spoke with Jundo he mentioned that the time might not change as the one fellow who sat with us (well with Jundo in Japan) last time might be coming sitting with us on a regular basis - thus the time might not change.

But also, it is Friday and I too might be foggy head and be wrong. =)

Thanks Shingen.

Hi all,

I still have a feeling it's at 8pm NY and 5pm LA since it says 9am Japan time, which would match up. We'll shall see.
