http://www.justin.tv/treeleafzen/b/289578509 (http://http://www.justin.tv/treeleafzen/b/289578509)



Our Zazenkai consists of our chanting the 'Heart Sutra' and the 'Identity of Relative and Absolute (Sandokai)' in English (please download our Chant Book at the link below), some full floor prostrations (please follow along with me ... or a simple Gassho can be substituted if you wish), a little talk by me ... and we close with the 'Metta Chant', followed at the end with the 'Verse of Atonement' and 'The Four Vows'. Oh, and lots and lots of Zazen and walkin' Kinhin in between!

Please download and print out the Chant Book (PDF) at the following link:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231 (http://http://www.treeleaf.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=2231)

I STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT YOU POSITION YOUR ZAFU ON THE FLOOR IN A PLACE WHERE YOU ARE NOT STARING DIRECTLY AT THE COMPUTER SCREEN, BUT CAN GLANCE OVER AND SEE THE SCREEN WHEN NECESSARY. YOUR ZAFU SHOULD ALSO BE IN A POSITION WHERE YOU CAN SEE THE COMPUTER SCREEN WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF THE ZAFU FOR THE CEREMONIES, AND HAVE ROOM FOR BOWING AND KINHIN.

ALSO, REMEMBER TO SET YOUR COMPUTER (& SCREEN SAVER) SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHUT OFF DURING THE 4 HOURS.

I hope you will join us ... an open Zafu is waiting. When we drop all thought of 'here' 'there' 'now' 'then' ... we are sitting all together!

Gassho, Jundo

Thank you for your commitment to our practice Jundo!

Thank you for sitting with me Dosho, Shinko, Amelia & Chessie and to all who will sit!

Gassho,

PS - I was able to download & convert the talk Jundo so we will be able to continue turning the zazenkai talks into podcasts as well on our new format!! Should be up on treeleaf.podbean.com in a few minutes!

Thank you, Shards, and thank you everyone who sat with all of us.

It appears that Justin.TV only keeps the old netcast videos for a week, so they will fade into impermanence even faster!

Gassho, Jundo

Thank you Jundo.

You clarified the practice really well. ...and I should have sat this zazenkai before posting on the Book Club thread! :D
Best wishes to you and your family.

Ah, and I was just starting to understand those Spanish insurance ads on UStream.

Don't need 'em in the middle of sitting, though. :wink:

Had my sit with Jundo and Justin.TV yesterday. Nice not to have those jarring "AFLACK" squawks coming down on one's head like a "zen-stick".

Thank you to your commitment Jundo Sensei and all fellow sitters! Still only 1/2 for me on these 4hr Zazenkai, but someday I will have time to get through the whole thing! Now I'm off to take care of the family who is just waking up. It was a pleasure to sit with everyone none the less!
It was nice to see the return of full floor prostrations :D

Gassho,
John
