'Student: Docho Roshi, what am I asking you? SR: I know what you want to ask me pretty well. But as you don't ask me now, I also don't want to answer you [laughter]. Student: But I'm not sure that I know. That's why I thought maybe you would know [laughs, laughter]. SR: I know [laughs, laughter]. Student: Will I know sometime to ask you? SR: Yes. But not now [laughter].' (from the Suzuki Roshi Archives)
Wednesday evenings with my dharma sister Kim have resumed, now that she has completed her shuso practice period at Zen Center. Since I know she likes listening to shosan ceremonies, I chose one from Tassajara in 1969. The intimacy and playfulness is plain here.
