Hello All,

NOTE: We have ... just out of the box ...A NEW COMPUTER! ... with enough capacity to handle our new Hi-Definition Camera (donated to us a few weeks ago) and our Samson Microphone ... HOWEVER, DUE TO MY FOOLISH MISTAKE PERHAPS, I STILL BROKE THE VIDEO INTO THREE SEGMENTS THIS WEEK!


CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN

00:00 00:15 THIS WEEK'S GREETING, CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication

http://justin.tv/treeleafzen/b/320816450

00:15 00:45 ZAZEN
00:45 00:55 KINHIN
00:55 01:25 ZAZEN

http://justin.tv/treeleafzen/b/320823304

01:25 01:30 FOUR VOWS, & VERSE OF ATONEMENT (MISSING) AND FINAL GREETING

http://justin.tv/treeleafzen/b/320823541

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

And, after last evening's crackling and popping during Dokan's lovely Shakuhachi ... and other recent technical non-difficulties ...

... just out of the box ...A NEW COMPUTER!

I carried it home from the store just after sending Dokan off to his plane back to America. This new laptop should have more than enough capacity to handle our new Hi-Definition Camera (donated to us a few weeks ago) and our Samson Microphone, which seem to have together overloaded the old workhorse. The new machine will be dedicated exclusively to our netcasts, and not have any other role or software on it. I have spent much of this afternoon installing and setting up, so we should be ready to go! All is testing fine. Both picture and sound should be crystal clear from today.

This is a first step on our TREELEAF 2.0 project next week.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5011 (http://http://www.treeleaf.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5011)

Soon after our return, we will also move to TWO-WAY VIDEO for our ZAZENKAI'S ... SEE EACH OTHER, SEE AS ONE ... as explained here ...


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ohlHn6Kt5YM&feature=player_embedded

I believe that this change, perhaps for our very next Zazenkai next week (or the week after, as I am still learning how to do it), will REVOLUTIONIZE how we come together and experience ZAZENKAI AS A COMMUNITY! (Thank you Kyonin).

I also plan to have a COMMUNITY 'KUYO' MEMORIAL SERVICE upon our return, expressing gratitude and putting to a peaceful rest our old computer ... and remembering so many other bits of hardware and software that have served this Treeleaf Sangha over the years ("Kuyo" is actually a traditional ceremony in Japanese Buddhism, to remember old tools and such) ... so please look forward and join us for that.

Looking forward to the new equipment - but the 'crackling,popping' sounded like friendly frogs croaking under water ( :shock: ) that seemed to be partially tamed by
Doken's Shakuhachi - hope you'll release the little fellas before Kuyo for the old machine :wink:

Will 'sit' recorded version of Zazenkai
