Thread: Metta Request for Peter Muryo Matthiessen Roshi

    Metta Request for Peter Muryo Matthiessen Roshi

    Dear All,

    A special metta request from my mentor (and an inspiration for Treeleaf's founding), Mitch Doshin Cantor of the White Plum. Doshin's teacher is Muryo Roshi, Peter Matthiessen, the naturalist-explorer who also happens to be one of the great American writers of the past century. Doshin writes ...

    Jundo--Muryo is in the last transition. We are hoping his vitals will get to a point where he can have hospice at home. The attached article was released today.I hope you will find it of value and perhaps share it where you are comfortable.

    Hopefully, he will get to see the reviews in the coming week or so.

    Love,Mitch
    Doshin is referring to this article today on Muryo Roshi that is in the New York Times. The man seems to be leaving this world with as much grace and energy as he has lived in it.

    An amazing life story, and such amazing books (I recommend "The Snow Leopard" and "Nine Headed Dragon River" to folks is you have never read any of his stuff) ...

    http://www.shambhala.com/nine-headed-dragon-river.html

    Let us sit for Muryo Roshi, who brought so much into this world.

    Nine Bows, J

    Much metta to Muryo Roshi. As I young man, I was greatly influenced by his book "The Snow Leopard." I often quote him in my yoga classes when I am trying to stress the importance of breath to my students. "In this very breath that we now take lies the secret that all great teachers try to tell us."

    I will sit for him and send much metta...The Snow Leopard is probably my favourite book and touched me deeply as I know it has so many others. I am very sad to hear he is leaving this world and I hope that he is able to have hospice at home.

    Shocking news. We had just ordered his newly released book. Such a gifted vital man.
    i do hope his passing is gentle and peace imbued. I will miss him and his inspired writings.

    bowing to Muryo Roshi in gratitude and deep respect!

    the weathered face of muryo always gave me comfort
    maybe it was that he shared how he secretly drafted sentences during zazen
    or the way I heard him say Pay Attention! on a tape I played
    over and over in my car


    thus leave us these old pillars of zen
    not by falling like trees
    but by becoming lighter and lighter until
    they take off in a heron's flight
    in fall or spring


    zen is a way to lead you to your long lost home
    may you arrive
    oh muryo may your flight go well


    I will never forget how you spoke about cranes

    There is an excellent piece on Matthiessen, his life, writing, and Zen practice in the New York Times. What I found particularly significant was the story of his travel to Auschwitz with Bernie Glassman. They sat zazen on the train platforms where the arriving prisoners were selected for death. Their reflections of that place and Glassman's remarks on human nature are very sobering.

    warmest thoughts.
    Diligently attain nothing. Sort of. Best not to over-think it.
