Hi everyone,

I'll be conducting Zazen tomorrow in the small sitting group in wich I'm involved here (a small Chan group affiliated to the "Chan order of Hsu Yun", formerly Soto Zen... but AZI being what it is in Belgium they split and join the order of Hsu Yun, where I'm in charge of zazen twice a week or so).

We are certainly going to use this recorded version, I wonder how the few people coming weekly is going to react... but this a good time to make the experiment.
I won't make it every week, but they ask how it "this zazen trough internet works", so they'll experiment it, as Jundo often said: "there is no here and there or now and then"...

So, thank you Shohei and Taigu,
I'll let you guys know how it went.

deep gassho,
Jinyu

Does everypne sit in the Zen hall too? I was there this morning, but nobody was there. Sat anyway.

The reason I ask is that I can't access ustream from here.

I remember a few folks used to sit in the Hall with the live version. Don't know if that's still happening. I have DSL, so I could never get the Hall & live Ustream to work simultaneously.

Nice to sit with y'all.

Thank you Taigu Sensei and to all fellow sitters. Taigu your chanting of the Heart Sutra was very beautiful! _/_
Where can we find a copie in Japanese(romaji) of your closing dedication?

Taigu,
Finally had some time to myself and sat the Zazenkai. Thank you. Your chanting has such resonance. It is living and fully and deeply present. Thanks too to Shohei.
