Words from the funeral eulogy for Trudy Dixon. Magnanimous mind
______________ Footnote From Wind Bell, 1970, Ix (1), P. 3: On July 1st [1969] Trudy made the difficult trip to Zen Mountain Center with her brother Jack who had come from Wyoming to see her. She wanted him to see Tassajara and to meet Roshi. At night, she slept outside of her cabin in the moonlight. On the night of the 3rd, she shared a cup of water from Tassajara Creek with Roshi and her brother, and the next day was driven back to a hospital in San Francisco. She returned to Tassajara and zazen two days later and, on the 8th, she again left for the hospital where, early the next morning, she died. _________________ Source: City Center transcript entered onto disk by Jose Escobar, 1997.
