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