    A SPECIAL TALK to COMMENCE 'ANGO' SEASON

    Dear All,

    Today is the Beginingless Beginning of our Jukai and Ango Season.

    Especially for our Ango participants, and for anyone, a short Talk on the meaning of the 'True Ango' that has 'No Obstacles' and nothing ever to interfere ... and which is precisely the obstacles that interfere!

    It was part of our Zazenkai today, and begins from about the 57:00 mark (for about 15 minutes or so). Please have a listen and a Sit.


    Gassho, Jundo

    Wow, Jundo. The perfect combination of support, truth, and a small dose of needed admonition. Thank you, deep bows.

    To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

    Shokai, Richard Maxwell, and I am not counting today, for all, I seek an Ango partner--I believe people are assigned? This year I am at peace, or at least coming into peace--as Shingen says, of today, lovely Zazenkai and Dharma talk one way--Thank you Jundo, Diazan, and all. I'm ready to begin Ango.

    The object of practice is not transcendence but transformation, yet ultimately we must transcend ourselves. (Elucidation of Dogen) in HOW TO RAISE AN OX

    Wonderful talk. I will book mark this talk and listen again if/when I need a boost of encouragement

    EDIT I wanted to add that this one talk nicely illustrates exactly why i happily call Treeleaf my Sangha.

    Thank you Jundo.

    Thank you, Jundo. I cannot even begin to tell you how encouraging your talk was to me. I will be listening to it again and again throughout Ango to really let it sink in.

    Thank you Jundo! It sounds like coming back to Ango happens all day, every day, the same way coming back to the present moment happens in Zazen. Ango=life, life=Ango.

    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).

    Thanks for the teaching, Jundo!
    I sat with this talk and found it motivational and encouraging to go through Ango .

    Thank you for this. Sat during Zazenkai and found my concerns about having committed to Ango and Jukai dissolved.

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

    Jundo, thank you so much for this talk. I've already watched it 3 times. I was struggling with whether or not to participate this year and I needed to hear this again.

    Thank you so much Sekishi! Now we can take it anywhere, this is wonderful!

    Rewatched this again before my evening sit.

    "When it hits the fan - that is ango".

    I've always sought a practice with an emphasis in the real world. Thank you for your needed words, Jundo.

    Thank you as well Sekishi. I listen to dharma talks as well....I find the sound of the dharma voice as instructive as the written dharma.

    Gassho,
