Suzuki Roshi

‘Our vital freedom will be like running water originating from a mountain and passing through valleys and fields, reaching the sea. There is no freedom for the water to return to the mountain. But at the same time there is vital freedom. This kind of life is called religious life. To attain it is to practice zazen without the idea of gaining.’ (from the Suzuki Roshi archives)

To close out the week, another one-day sitting talk from 1965 (whose tape is now lost). If you are able to join the class that Abbot Ed and I are starting this morning on the Suzuki Roshi archive, it will be great to see you on screen.
