Shunryu Suzuki

Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971) was a Japanese Zen master (Soto school), direct spiritual descendent of the Zen master Dogen. He moved to San Francisco, USA in 1959, and founded the Tassajara Zen Mountain Center, the first Zen training monastery outside Asia, City Center (in San Francisco) and Green Gulch Farm. A collection of his teisho[?]'s (Zen talks) were bundled in the books Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind and Not Always So: Practicing the True Spirit of Zen. His lectures on the Sandokai[?] are collected in Branching Streams Flow in the Darkness. Suzuki's biography is captured in David Chadwick's Crooked Cucumber[?].
