About this talk
Shunryu Suzuki Lecture from the April, 1965 Wind Bell The Hekigan Roku, translated into English by R.D.M. Shaw under the title of The Blue Cliff Records, is a famous collection of 100 koan stories compiled by Setcho Juken (A.D. 980-1052), who added an "Appreciatory Word" to each one. A later Zen Master, Engo Kokugon (A.D. 1063-1135) added his "Introductory Word" as a kind of Preface to each Main Subject. The following is a translation and commentary of Main Subject No. 84 by Reverend Suzuki.
Checked by Gordon Geist using the Shaw translation Suzuki used- 1999 *** File name: 65-04-00: Blue Cliff Records-84, Yuima's Law Gate To The One And Only Wind Bell titles this "Model Subject No. 94 from The Blue Cliff Records...YUI-MA'S 'THE DOCTRINE OP ATTAINING NON-DUALITY'"; however it is No. 84. Removed duplicate paragraphs in footnote 2 - 2-28-2015 by DC. "(based on student notes)" I think I put that in there and now after having read over them think he was more involved in what went into the Wind Bell, even mentioned writing something for it. I think it's better not to have that note.11/10/14
