One pleasant aspect of being part of a Sangha is the wide family connections it allows. Today, we are visited in Japan by my Dharma Brother, Jean-Marc “Tenryu” Bazy, founder and teacher of l’association zen Dogen Sangha de Lyon-Villeurbanne, France. He is joined by several members from Lyon, all visiting Japan for the first time. Taigu‘s here, too (he’s also from France, of course)!
Please sit-a-long with our special 90-minute Zazenkai. It begins with a wonderful Heart Sutra recitation in Japanese by Taigu, followed by two periods of 30 minute Zazen, with 10 minutes of Kinhin walking in between. Le Zazen Formidable! Merci, Tenryu, Taigu et tout! [Click through to "sit-a-long" with today's video.]
