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 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 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

24 hours later, "now" and "then" only illusions. Sometimes I get very attached to a routine, and if I can't stick to it exactly I get annoyed. It's good for me to have to deal with bumps now and then. Very turbulent thoughts today, found myself lost for a good period of time. But again, as long as it's understood right? :P

Mmm, I know I posted here yesterday morning but it seems to have fallen off...anywho (to quote a Canadian Dharma-Brother) I was there Jundo. The sit began in the extreme muggy heat we have here these days, but "sometime and somewhere" during Zazenkai, a nice little breeze would wafty through my open windows and bring joy.

Gassho,
