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

A very late birthday greeting to Taigu (who has the same birthday as my older brother, btw). I also want a copy of Will's Heart Sutra. 8) I've been dreaming of recording a version of the Heart Sutra ever since I saw the pop and hardcore Hatsune Miku versions on YouTube.

Happy Birthday Taigu, thank you Jundo, and thank you Will.
The picture and sound were excellent from the new camera, I used my new zafu for the first time today, we were truly sitting in style. :)
