    John Daido Loori, Roshi

    I am very saddened to learn that John Daido Loori is coming towards the end of his days on this earth. He has made a massive contribution to my personal development in zen and I fondly remember my time with him.

    I would like to wish him and his family peace at this difficult time along with support for the sangha which continue to develop Zen Mountain Monastary where his passing will leave an irreplacable gap.

    His writings were some of the first that I encountered and had a big influence on my decision to pursue Zen practice. He will be missed.

    Very sad news indeed. I had hoped to hear him speak in person someday, but we are fortunate to have so many writings. Still, not the same.

    I also received a message recently saying that Toni Packer's health had left her confined to her home. Great voices, never enough time to hear them all.

    I just finished Eight Gates of Zen, one of a number of his books I have read. He will be missed even as he lives on in all of us.

    Our weekly Zazenkai today will be dedicated to Daido Roshi, a teacher for all of us.

    He lives on. He has not gone anywhere, for he never came from. ... great loss, no loss, oh great loss.

    His talks ... oh, those sweet, wise, wonderful talks ... are always right at hand. If you have never heard a Daido Dharma Discourse... jump in anywhere (but find the audio versions if you can. so his warm wise and wise-cracking self can shine through) ...

    He is a great teacher, only his body left this world, but he is not really come or go.

    Gassho for him, Mujo

    Condolences to his family and the Sangha of Zen Mountain Monastery.
    One of my treasured items by Roshi is a short essay "Art as Teacher" and a box of 40 separate works of Zen Art with a Zen commentary of each by Roshi, along with an art commentry by Stephen Addiss. His commentary on Ten Thousand Dharmas Return to the One, sat in front of my computer during Jukai this last January.

    Deep Gassho,
