    Chant Book is here for those who wish to join in: CHANT BOOK LINK

    The other video I mention on Zendo decorum is this one, from our "Always Beginners" video Series:

    I also recommend a little Talk on why small rituals and procedures are so cherished in the Zendo:

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

    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).

    Many apologies but I need some sleep tonight. I will sit with you across space and time over the weekend as ever.

    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.

    The Yat Ah Gow Ah River (close as I could get ) was of value. Thank you.

    Congrats to Leon! As Jakuden implied, guess we will be seeing you Sates side.

    Ah, thanks to the magic of someone's posting on Youtube, you too can experience a few minutes of walking the Yatagawa in all its majesty and beauty, the flowers and rice fields and, well, the more rusty bridge and highway overpass parts too which have a geometric beauty of their own. You can see the kind of area in Ibaraki Prefecture where we live too.

    If the current Chinese characters are correct, the Yatagawa is the "Valley Fields River" : 谷田川. However, some old maps show that that was not the original meaning.



    Gassho, J

    Jundo, congratulations to your son, he sure must be proud of his achievement.

    Thank you everyone. I sat with you this morning (Sunday rather than my usual Saturday due to a leaking shower base that demanded attention)

    Congratulations Leon!

    Good to see you Shingen

    Feel free to message me if you wish to talk about issues around practicing with physical limitations. This is something I have been sitting with for a fair while and am happy to help with suggestions or just offer a listening ear.
