01:25 01:30 FOUR VOWS, & VERSE OF ATONEMENT

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

Think I'll be able to make this one "live" for once! Will probably be on G+ for any other sitters out there.

Would love to join you Matt but alas family obligations require my presence this evening. Will try to catch Morelos tomorrow if possible.

Thanks to Jundo, Matto and Ron for that G+ zazenkai sit. Sorry I was a bit late; tuck-in ran long.

Gassho and a terrific weekend to all.

Thank you Jundo Sensei and all fellow sitters! Part of my Ango Samu commitment has been to finish up all the half finished projects around the house :shock: . I did 3 hours of painting today so my wife let me sit this one live while she watched the kiddies :D

Gassho,
John
