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

See you then!

Marcos -- Most of the sangha use Google+ for this sort of thing. See this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4564&p=70446 (http://http://www.treeleaf.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4564&p=70446)

Although the last few zazenkai I have not seen anyone hosting a video hangout during that time.

That's what I'll be doing tomorrow 6 am Philippine time (GMT + 8 hours). So if anyone can't sit today they can sit with me.

EDIT: On second thought, make that 5:45 am Philippine time.

Bows to those who are sitting today.

Actually, we can all arrange to meet this time on Google+. I can see that you Marcos have an account there.

So what you think?

I think it´ll be great, and I´m already "hanging out" there... in a few minutes Zazenkai will start.. here in Brazil it´ll be at friday´s nine o´clock pm.

We can talk a little after Zazenkai, what do you guys think?

The dancing heart sutra made my day. Not being in a good mood, due to a cold, I found it was great to 'take it easy' :)
Thanks everyone

Thank you Jundo; I'm off to the FleaMarket. I think I saw an old Disco Ball there that I can send you for your next recitation of the Heart Sutra. :roll: :lol:
