    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:

    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).

    I have a lot to learn; take anything I say that sounds like teaching with a grain of salt.

    I have no idea how many times I have said this, but thank you Jundo for somehow magically knowing exactly what healing words are needed. Deep bows.

    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.

    Hi everyone - I'll sit this one a bit later but it is nice to be back. Long story short - just had lots of troubling non-troubles and have struggled with non-struggling, so am in the process of making a number of practical changes in my life, particularly by finally giving up my toxic job which I have had a love-hate relationship with, so that I can recover many things, one of which being my buddhist practice, so here I am again.

    Hope you are all well, and if not, that you rest in equanimity through your ills. See you live in the zendo soon.

    Regard, Tokan

    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.

    Thank you for the wise words, Jundo. I just finished sitting with this Zazenkai on demand, the morning after we unexpectedly lost one of our cats of 15+ years. He was especially close to me and a best friend. What you said, "...something that cannot be broken, something that cannot be lost" is incredibly helpful as I work through this. It is hard to define, but this resonates with me. What we had was beautiful and unbroken and timeless and even this experience, too, is part of the All.

    Thank you again Jundo, Jakuden and everyone for your practice.

    Gassho,
