About this talk
Shunryu Suzuki Lecture from the July, 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. 86 by Reverend Suzuki.
Checked by Gordon Geist using the Shaw translation Suzuki used- 1999 *** File name: 65-07-00: Blue Cliff Records-86, Ummon's Store-Room And Temple Gate - Commentary pdf added 8-09 (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
