Thread: New Zealand Monday evening zazen

  1. #1

    New Zealand Monday evening zazen

    Tēnā koe, or more informally, kia ora, or a warm New Zealand welcome to a new scheduled zazen sitting.

    From Monday 17th Feb at 2000 New Zealand time, I will sit in the scheduled sitting room for a regular weekly 30 minute zazen sit. If you are from my part of the world, or if you're time zone makes this a convenient sit for you, please join me. The scheduled sitting room can be found in 'treeleaf NOW', and if you already have it saved in your favourites awesome, if not it is easy to find if you google 'treeleaf now' or enter via the Zoom ID: 483 483 1244.

    I will be online myself at precisely 2000, we will allow five minutes for people to join and then start zazen. Basic zendo etiquette applies, if you are new and not sure what that means please ask around the forum - the weekly zazenkai thread has some guidance too.

    Be great to see you there tomorrow or any Monday after that. You are welcome to PM me at any time.

    Gassho, Tokan (Leon)

    I applaud you Folks for your undertaking. There is something more than30 miles (ca. 48 km) away too much for Marjorie. I think round trip more than 60 miles (ca. 97 km), maybe 70 miles (ca. 113 km)-- not possible. Someday maybe but I think what you have is wonderful.

    "As the Buddha designed it, the Sangha's responsibility is to keep their vows, learn and practice the Dharma, and teach and guide the lay people. The lay people in turn, provide the requisites for life..." So are not the lay people the Sangha? Thubten Chodron.

    Hi Michael, good to see you last night. Tokan wasn't there to lead so a bit DIY! Still, sitting is sitting.

    Deep bows, Chris

    Hi all

    Apologies for last night. I accessed the room through the quicklink on the treeleaf now page - but I seem to have been in a different place to you guys. Wherever I was, I was sitting with you

    I'll try to get it right next week
