Shunryu Suzuki Roshi

Basho and his staff-

I recently listened to this podcast and found it very good. So I decided to share it here. The teisho is given by  Genjo Marinello Osho at the Chobo-Ji Zen Temple in Seattle.

Nice link to how to prepare Green Tea,

Beginner's Mind

When I bought the book(Beginner's Mind) by Suzuki Roshi , this copy of his calligraphy stating Beginner's Mind was inside. Thought it would be nice to share.

Samurai Morning.

Well , not much on my agenda today but decided to fire up a few movies that I meant to see when they came out but never did.
First one was Zentoichi

And then watched this one -Ichi

Overall I liked them both , although the Bollywood style ending on Zentoichi was a little weird.
