Hello All,

Please 'sit-a-long' with our weekly FRIDAY/SATURDAY 'LIVE FROM TREELEAF' 90 minute ZAZENKAI, netcast LIVE from 9am Japan time Saturday morning (that is New York 8pm, Los Angeles 5pm (Friday night), London 1am and Paris 2am (early Saturday morning)

... and to be visible at the following link during those times and any time thereafter ...

FOR THOSE NOT ALREADY MEMBERS OF THE CIRCLE WHO WISH TO JOIN TO SIT LIVE WITH A CAMERA, INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE POSTED FOR FUTURE WEEKS. WE ARE NOW LIMITED TO 10 INDIVIDUALS WITH CAMERAS, BUT ANY NUMBER CAN WATCH LIVE 'ONE WAY' AND SIT-A-LONG. IF JOINING WITH CAMERA, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR MICROPHONE IS MUTED:

00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English ONLY) and Dedication
00:15 – 00:45 ZAZEN
00:45 – 00:55 KINHIN
00:55 – 01:25 ZAZEN
01:25 – 01:30 FOUR VOWS & VERSE OF ATONEMENT

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 about 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 Chants we will recite at the following link (PDF):

Chant Book (PDF) (http://www.treeleaf.org/treeleaf_zazenkai_chant_book.pdf)

or

Chant Book (SHORT VERSION HTML) (http://www.treeleaf.org/forums/showthread.php?7032-Weekly-Monthly-Zazenkai-Chant-Book-is-Here)

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 gassho1

My wife is off to Atlanta for a job interview so I'm running solo tonight, but I'm still going to try to make it. May have to bribe my older daughters with cookies to mind the younger one but hope to see you later!

Thanks everyone and sorry for all the moving around...about halfway through the first round of zazen my left ankle and foot started hurting. I tried shifting, but only found temporary relief. Such is zazen, such is life. :)

Deep bows!

Gassho,
Dosho

P.S. Happy Birthday Jundo! [happybday]

Happy Birthday-Non-Birthday to everyone, always!


We are each born, get older ... no problem (despite the problems of age).


Plus, there is that continuous something, timelessly embracing all that comes and goes. So, since we're just so too, a Non-Birthday!


Plus Plus, we are all born and renew each instant ... every moment a Birthday.


And since I am you, you just me, all of the kitchen sink and Buddha ... always ALL OUR BIRTHDAY-NON-BIRTHDAY! ALWAYS BUDDHA'S BIRTHDAY TOO!
