Ango 2011 - Day 18

  • Morning Zazen (60m @ 06:00)
  • Shobo Study
    • Spent some time on Transmission of the Robe
    • Again, Dogen continues with the same reverence and expounding of the virtues of the robe and it's merit to those who maintain it properly.
  • Dokusan
    • Was able to have dokusan with Taigu tonight!
    • Was wonderful to talk with him about practice, flutes, studies, languages, retreats and of course sewing!  
    • The hour just flew by.
  • Shakuhachi
    • Practice the Ha Ro couplet over, and over, and over and over again.  
    • As I move up the register it get's easier, but that Ro is really difficult for me.
    • Started to play Choshi straight through without getting stuck and noticed it sounded better when I didn't overthink it.
  • Evening Zazen (30m @ 21:00)
    • Sat solo and without G+
    • Tried to get my Android tablet to show the video and join Ron but didn't work as I think Ron was already done.
