    Let's share a meal

    Hello all,

    We will be meeting Sunday, August 14th at 9:30am New York City Time (6:30am Los Angeles California, 2:30pm UTC) to practice Oryoki. Shingen will be leading the chanting this time.

    All are welcome! (Don't worry, it will not be recorded)

    If you have any questions please post them here!

    Gassho,

    Shugen

    Can folks just drop in and observe ? I have never practiced or observed Oryoki and really don't know a whole lot about it.

    I won't be available at that time but will take my meal in the evening (still with you all).

    Could we possibly do a session sometime that is recorded? Not the actual eating of course, but the ceremony with the chants, minus the instructions. If that makes sense.

    Nope, what ever you like. Usually you will see one main dish for the Buddha bowl, a side dish for the middle bowl, and soup or tea for the small bowl. But again, all up to you. =)

    Hello all,

    I would like to meet again for a Oryoki meal on Sunday, February 12th at 9:30am (New York City Time) The meal should take about half an hour. (It will not be recorded)

    If you have never tried Oryoki and would like to, this is a great, no pressure opportunity.

    Here is a video Jundo created to give an overview:




    And here is a document Shingen created that lists the steps and chants:

    I am going to try to come unless some Sunday family event or crisis prohibits it!

    Hello All,

    Jundo's wonderful talk has reminded me it's time to dust the cobwebs out of here.

    Stay tuned for upcoming events......

    It will be interesting to view. I observe each group ties their oryoki bundle with a different kind of final knot.

    If there's one thing teenage girls love, it's elaborate ancient rituals with complicated rules.

    LOL!!! Point taken. They completely disdain even ordinary table manners, especially if there are no adults dining with them. Oh well.

    I am going to make an effort to participate. Our son charlie will be home on leave from the Navy though, so my scheduling may be taken over by other matters. If it can be, it will.

    Hello All,

    I created an Event on Google Plus but it had some issues. If anyone is interested in joining but did not get an invitation, please PM me or post here.

    I will post the link to the Hangout on this thread as soon as I am able.

    I look forward to practicing together tomorrow!
