Gassho, J

Right, thank you Jundo for reminding me that.

It was a wonderful sitting, but I had to do a "Sitting kinhin" in my office chair because of a second degree sprain in my left ankle (note to self: I'm not so young anymore and rock concerts are best seen from the stands, not jumping surrounded by teenagers)

Thank you all, deep bows and have a great weekend! :)

P.S. Jundo what were you saying during the second period of Zazen?

P.S. Jundo what were you saying during the second period of Zazen?

I usually give a short talk for the people attending in Tsukuba, often in Japanese or both English and Japanese if we have Japanese folks attending. However, I try to say it softly just for the folks there. In fact, it is basically the same as in the sit-a-long talks, so no reason to listen and probably something you have heard 10,000 times before.

Gassho, J

Sat with the recorded version today but then had to stop after the first round of zazen and kinhin because I realized I didn't have as much as time as I had originally thought :oops: :oops: :oops: (note to self: plan ahead a little better).

Anyway, I plan to sit the second round tomorrow 6 am Philippine time (GMT + 8 hours) on Google Plus if anyone's interested to join.
