    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:

    Man, time for the "Extreme Slap Bass Japanese Heart Sutra" ... which is just what it says ...


    By the way, if you like this guy's stuff, more here ... just a great bass player ...

    If that's not enough, he did a 108 (sacred number!!) minute marathon with the Hannya, which he called "Hey, if I do this for 108 minutes, will there be Satori?!"

    Bass shredding Heart Sutra what's not to like. I hope you checked out his hand and finger stretches Jundo, as he starts that 2 hour session. I'm gone man, solid gone.

    Metta to all learning the E shaped barre chord. Double metta when you start on the A shape !! Jundo, you'd better be learning songs Grasshopper. Treeleaf guitarist's will smile, others will scratch their heads. Part 2 in the morning and looking forward to this weeks Dharma talk long short or silent.

    Thank you everyone. I sat and danced with you this morning.

    I liked the talk today Jundo. Music is a huge part of my life so I always appreciate how it is woven into practice-life.

    Keep at it with the F chord Jundo.

    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.

    I thank you all for an interesting beginning of zazenkai. I thank you all for the beginning before my lunch, and I have already sat 1/2 Hour with Onkai, and yesterday a special way I'm learning. This Saturday/ Friday, I will sit zazenkai with Treeleaf Zendo Today is Tue at 1:06 p.m.
