OUR 90 MINUTE SITTING SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS:

00:45 00:55 KINHIN
00:55 01:25 ZAZEN
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

Today's 3 hours of painting the house earned me another live sit :D
Thank you Jundo Sensei and all fellow sitters _/_
Hope Brad is doing well.

Thanks for the sit tonight. Thanks to Don and Ron for sitting with me on G+, those who sat on Justin.tv and our guest in Tsukuba.

Hi,
for the past three weeks I the recorded zazenkai has only been the last twenty minutes! :(
#Is this just a local thing or is anyone else finding it so?

Onshin,
I sat last two via recorded version, and they were always complete for me.

Thanks Pete,
I went back to look and sure enough it was at 1 hour 12, but I then found the rewind button and it will go back to the start. So now I wonder why it starts at twenty minutes from the end and needs windind back to the start. Wird science here. :lol:

Thanks for the tip Onshin. I've noticed Justin TV seems to do a few strange things from time to time. More so with live streaming through their app. Though I haven't had this specific problem, I'm glad you made a note of it here in case it ever does happen!

Onshin,

Same thing happened to me this morning, but I was grateful to know what to do from your experience...thank you!

My thanks also to Jundo and all members of Treeleaf sangha for all that you do and non-do! ;)

Me too! It also showed me a commercial and then told me I had to disable my ad blocker to see commercials. I think it was a koan. :roll:

Anyway, a good sit.
