    Hello All,

    ... and to be visible on the following screen during those times and sit-a-long-able any time thereafter ...

    LIVE ZAZENKAI NETCAST at GOOGLE+ IS HERE:
    CLICK ON THE TAB ON LOWER RIGHT FOR 'FULL SCREEN




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

    00:00 – 00:15 CEREMONY (HEART SUTRA in English) and Dedication

    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'.

    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!

    I will be unable to be here live due to my wife and kids wanting to celebrate my 40th birthday, the latter mostly because they are aware that cake is traditionally involved.

    Gassho,

    Happy Birthday.

    40 really is old.

    You really should not have done those priest videos - I thought you all were much younger...
    It IS a Jedi-Power, it cannot be the hair only...

    If you could stop hair loss with the force, I imagine Yoda would probably have a nicer coiffure!

    Thanks for the good wishes!

    He/him. As a novice priest-in-training, this is simply an expression of my opinion. Please take it with a grain of salt.

    Thank you,!! It was such an honor to experience Zazen with you all. I'm looking forward to many more. Unfortunately, my data modem loves to drop the connection periodically so I don't know if I will ever be able to participate two-way, from home at least, without being a nuisance to everybody. (I thought I was having sound issues too, but when you said "Steven Hawking reciting the Heart Sutra" I knew it wasn't just me. )

    Gassho,

    P.S. Happy Birthday Dosho!

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    Thank you all.

    Being a novice priest doesn't mean that my writing about the Dharma is more substantial than yours. Actually, it might well be the other way round.
