Hi,

[FOR TECHNICAL REASONS, THIS SIT IS A RECORDED 'RE-SIT' OF A PREVIOUS ZAZENKAI. ALL THE SAME THOUGH DIFFERENT]!

Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 1-hour ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE TODAY from 10pm Japan time (that is New York 9am, Los Angeles 6am, London 2pm and Paris 3pm, SATURDAY) ...
... and to be visible at the following link during those times ...

LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at USTREAM:

But FEAR NOT if not possible for you to join 'live' in your location at those times, as the entire sitting is recorded in 'REAL TIME' and available for full participation 'on demand' at any time after that, no different from the 'live' sitting :

'REAL TIME' recorded 'ANY TIME' version link is here:

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 for approximately 40 minutes, 5 minutes of Kinhin, and we end the sitting with 'The Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'.

Please download and print out the words of the Chants we will recite at the following link:

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!


Gassho, Jundo

Well that was interesting....No Sound, No Space, No Time. What a wonderful Zen experience...except for the occasional Macy's Ad blaring through the silence!!!!

Gassho,

Sorry about the sound guys. Not sure what the cause. Hope you were kidding about the Macy's ads!

THE SOUND OF SILENCE!

Sorry, I wasn't kidding about the Macy's ads. I was brought out of Zazen three times with them. A box opened, covered you up and began a spiel about Macy's.

Definitely Makyo. A Macy's Makyo.

(For those not familiar with the term Makyo) ...

The silence was interesting..

my cats had never listened to me do the Heart Sutra solo before.. they sat.. listened for a bit.. pointed at me and giggled.
