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!

It was a very nice Zazenkai featuring ultra cute baby Sada!

Very inspiring to see you directing the ceremony with her on your back. We sit with what is indeed. :D

Thanks Jundo, Sada all in the chat room and John on Hangout!

Could not get this to play for me

I'm finding lately that it just sits there with a black screen at first. If I hit play/pause once or twice more it'll eventually come up (starting somewhere around the 1:20 mark :roll: ). Then I just roll it back to zero and let it buffer, which may or may not work on any given day. I'm thinking of renegotiating computer time with my husband to sit live on Friday nights.

Good luck.

Thank you, Jen. I am not sure what the cause of the technical glitch is (I am getting it too), but that seems to be the solution.
