    Sunday Morning Zazen US Eastern Time

    Greetings all,
    I'm planning to resume Sunday morning zazen at 830 AM Eastern time this coming Sunday, January 19. The Hangout will open at 8:25 AM - we will open with the Robe Verse, sit for thirty minutes, and close with the Heart Sutra.

    Those of you who have been receiving invites for previous Sunday morning zazen will continue to do so - if you have not been receiving invites but would like to be added please let me know here in this thread.

    Thank you!
    Deep bows
    Yugen

    Joyo, Daitetsu, and Clark,
    You are added to the invite list! Wonderful!

    Clark - the Robe Verse (Takkesage) is chanted when donning the rakusu or kesa in preparation for or during zazen. We will chant it at the beginning of our zazen, for those who have taken the precepts and have sewn a rakusu or kesa. It is a beautiful chant in Japanese and English.... quickly becoming my favorite recitation..... below please find the verse from the Treeleaf Chant Book:

    Robe of Liberation boundless

    Field beyond both form and formless

    Wearing the Tathagatha’s Teachings

    Vowing to save all sentient beings

    Deep bows
    Yugen

    Hello all,
    A quick update on Sunday morning zazen:

    Sea Kayak guiding season is starting and I will be on the water most weekends. As we start early I will not be able to sit in the morning. I would like to survey the Sunday zazen group to see if there would be interest in having Sunday zazen at 9 PM Sunday night on a weekly basis.

    Deep bows
    Yugen

    Yugen,

    It seems I will not be able to join you for a while as 9:00pm your time would make it 04:00am my time. Perhaps I can join the group again when you do, if you do, go back to Sunday mornings

    It was great sitting with the group

    Hi Yugen,
    Love to join you. But like Taikyo, I'm fast asleep at that time.
    Happy sitting!

    Taikyo and Myozan,
    I enjoy sitting with you in a time frame that suits both our geographies.... unfortunately for the summer season Sunday mornings won't work. I can return to to the morning time in October .... I appreciate both your support, it means a lot.

    Deep bows
    Yugen
