    Wonderful to join everyone tonight. And learning the ancient history of the hokey-pokey was illuminating!

    What a wonderful and solid start to Ango and Jukai. Thank you all so much for coming together and supporting one another through our practice.

    And tonight's Hokey Pokey turned into a serious cardio session at the end! I may be able to skip my run tomorrow.

    Gassho,
    Rob

    You know, for all the nothing we do, I always find the long zazenkai to be quite a work out!

    Thank you, I'm very grateful to be able to participate in this beautiful ceremony, great talk reminding me that it's not all about me but my practice is for others

    I managed the first sit before getting too tired. My old cat also joined in, he did better than me, he was still on the zabuton this morning.
    Lovely to see so many first time Ango people, enjoy!

    It was great seeing you Jonathon. Zoom was hiding you on the second page for me, but I scrolled over to your side for a bit!

    Grateful for this lineage, for Jundo's teaching, and for the sangha that helps make Treeleaf Zendo so unique and of such good service to this world.

    I was looking forward to sitting the recorded version this afternoon but I didn’t realise the village hall had live rock bands playing today. Currently listening to ‘Spirit in the sky’ . Will get rid of husband again tomorrow and sit then.

    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, y'all. Just finished sitting with the recording.
    In the Dedication of Merit lines, "...and to all other Honored Ones throughout history, male and female honored ones, whose names have been forgotten or left unsaid,"--is this just a longer way of saying, "everyone else"?

    No, it is specifically to recognize the women as well as men, including the differently abled, who were unable to enter, were excluded from or never given full recognition as deserved within the male and able-body dominated Sangha in traditional Asia and elsewhere, as well as "everyone else" who contributed to the Dharma but just has been forgotten by history.

    You can read a bit more about that here:

    Also here:

    Next Book Club Selection: Zen Women by Grace Schireson
    https://www.treeleaf.org/forums/foru...TERS-BOOK-CLUB

    It is not an attempt to be "PC," and merely recognizing folks who deserve recognition but were left behind.

    Got a later start on this than I would've liked (husband and I are on the tail end of moving) but it was very nice to sit with all of you and kick off this year's Ango!

    Hope Ango is off to a good start for you all. This is my first ever, and though I am keeping it "simple" I am already getting a lot out of it as I focus on quality.

    Thanks everyone for doing this Jukai and Ango with us. I just finished up the Zazenkai and wanted to say the Zydeco Hokey Pokey is an ancient tradition that must be maintained for its historic lineage and value. Loved it.

    I love this talk every year - each time it just hits the target.

    I don't always think of the ancestors when I chant them but, if it weren't for Nishijima Roshi (indirectly), I would have no practice at all. Much gratitude to him and you Jundo and all the ancestors.

    And thank you Kyonin for your Ango reminder I really tend to go on the tighter/restrictive side of things which is a double-edged sword.

    Thank you to the sangha for your practice - you help keep me going.
