    Here is a series of 33 'Sit-a-Long with Jundo' talks based upon Master Dogen's incomparable 'Instructions for the Cook' (Tenzo Kyokun) ...


    ... which are not just about cooking soup, but about cooking all of life.

    and

    • Nothing Is Hidden : Essays on Zen Master Dogen's Instructions for the Cook by Shohaku Okumura Roshi (now hard to find!)

    ALSO, although not directly about the Tenzo Kyokun, this delicious film and teaching by an actual Tenzo and gifted teacher (and an interesting guy too) .... Edward Espe Brown of Tassajara ...
