Just a reminder that I will be leading our weekly, 1 hour "live" Saturday sitting, midnight (Saturday/Sunday) Japan time ... which will be Saturday morning or afternoon in most parts of the world. Please check your local time. I will try to use both the 'Always Open Zen Hall" and USTREAM (so it can be recorded for later sitters) ... hopefully I will get everything working this time. I will have links on the blog shortly before the sitting.

I plan to start with 3 floor prostrations (or deep Gassho), then chant Heart Sutra in JAPANESE only this week (we will alternate English/Japanese week to week), then sit 30 or 35 minutes, the 10 minutes of Kinhin, closing with the chant of the "4 Vows". Please join in all.

Gassho, Jundo

To save all sentient beings, though beings numberless

To transform all delusions, though delusions inexhaustible

To perceive Reality, though Reality is boundless

To attain the Enlightened Way, a Way non-attainable
