    Hello, dear Treeleaf Zendo,

    SIT-A-LONG with JUNDO: Dogen - A Love Supreme


    How to Read Dogen

    Good stuff! Let me mention that I am presently getting ready for re-issue a book called "A Heart to Heart Chat with Old Master Gudo" that I translated many years ago, but which went out of print when the publisher folded. I am also going to add to it a new translation of some writings of Nishijima's Teacher, Niwa Zenji, which I recently found.

    Jambudvipian, might I trouble you to post an introduction to yourself to everyone here ...

    and, if you would, a human face too as mentioned here. Thank you so much.

    Gassho, Jundo
