[69-06-29-bh] - Source: 69-06-29 digital audio archive from DC. Problem set. Thanks to audio work by AW, transcribed October 2012 by Bill Hackenberg. Further prep by DC. Most of the last two minutes were unintelligible and indicated that in the transcript. I think Shunryu Suzuki was perhaps going into the four Japanese characters for form is emptiness, emptiness is form, form is form and emptiness is emptiness. He may have been writing at a board and got far away from the mike? Some of the audio seemed to indicate he was referring to aspects of the Japanese characters. Someone who understands Japanese may have better luck with the last two minutes. It would still be very hard to hear, but maybe worth a shot. - Bill *** File name: 69-06-29: Emptiness is Form (titled by pf) Speeds up extreme toward end Most of the last two minutes were unintelligible and indicated that in the transcript...
