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

I wanted to express my deep gratitude to all who sat tonight. I had a really bumpy couple of days and came close to not sitting tonight. I came to my zafu, sat, and saw you all here. You all carried me through - thank you and

Gassho,
Yugen

PS - welcome home Sada!

That was great!

With technical problems but at the same time with no problems (day as everyday in reality, right?) :D

Thank you Jundo and all sitters.

Hey Guys,

We had a glitch the first half (we call them around here "technical non-difficulties" 8) ), but I am so glad you all know that it is part of the Practice ... sitting with what thus comes, as it comes. A wonderful sit.

Now, I am off to the hospital to bring our baby home.

Gassho, Jundo

Jundo,

Wonderful news on Sada coming home!

Yugen,

I'm glad you sat with us and took up the lead role in getting us organized! You'd make a very good priest. :)

And my thanks to everyone who sat, is sitting, or will sit...deep bows.

Gassho,
Dosho

But aren't they all the same anyway? :-)

Thank you Jundo Sensei, Marek who sat during the recorded version with me on G+, my wife who watched the baby, and all other fellow sitters past and future. Can't do it without you all. Deep gassho _/_

No thing in this universe is ever the same. Same but very different, different and thus precisely the same. Are you the same each time you sit with the sitting? If not, then the sitting is not the same. 8) And that is just the 'same old same old'.

Realize the meaning of such, and there are no "technical difficulties".

Gassho, J

I was sold a cool, refreshing Heineken at the start of Zazenkai this week: all those fresh droplets of water on the ice cold bottle; all those beautiful people relieving their thirst; how healthy and athletic those models looked, despite their drinking habit. Samsara IS nirvana after all! :D
