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

Hi All,

After a slight hiatus :( in sitting our Zazenkai I'll be there this evening for the live cast. The wife and I underwent new negotiations. She will now be taking up yoga once a week and I get to sit our live Zazenkai :)
A great compromise to start off the new year right! Looking forward to sitting with everyone tonight.

Gassho,
John

My eternal thanks to all who sat, are sitting, or will sit....and it's good to have Jundo home, even though he really never left. ;)

I'm bummed I missed this live (I was confused by the date/time). But I really enjoyed my first Zazenkai.

Thanks Jundo, and welcome back
