    Live Saturday Sitting with Jundo

    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). I will try to 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 ENGLISH 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 "Verse of Repentance" and "4 Vows". Please join in all.

    Gassho, Jundo

    Well I don't know if it is just me or if the site is down but I can't get mebeam to load in Firefox or Explorer. So here is my commitment I will BLINDLY follow Jundo and do the sitting as directed in his entry above.

    I miss seeing everybody but I know everyone is still there .

    It's not your computer Damian, it's the site.

    I sat with the ustream. :roll:

    Hi Guys,

    Yes, the site was down. I did it only on Ustream, and it is now available in recording on the "sit-a-long" blog ... ... jundo.html

    'Blindly follow' Ha! Good one Damien. Took me a while to think about stopping here to see what's going on. Then, I sat with the ustream too. Great sitting. Did we miss the verse of atonement and four vows? I did them anyway.

    Time to clean the house. I'm making this a day of mindfulness. Every article of clothing, every push of the vacuum cleaner and even every scrub of the toilet will be performed with complete awareness. Dropping all 'hate doing this' and 'ewww toilet' :lol:

    Tried to get in for some time but it didn't work out. I did not know one could choose something else as an alternativ. :shock:
