About this talk
Sunday, August 20, 1967 Morning Sesshin Zen Mountain Center, Tassajara Edited by Brian Fikes (Note from Brian Fikes: The first portion of this lecture was not recorded. This is the first [sic]1 in a series of [three] lectures on the Genjokoan given during the sesshin ending the first training period at Tassajara.)
Transcribed by Brian Fikes. Text reformatted and notes amended by Bill Redican 2/20/02. 1According to Wind Bell (1968, No. 1-2, p. 16), this is the last lecture of a series of three on the Genjo Koan given by Suzuki at Tassajara. The fact that Suzuki is discussing the last paragraphs of the fascicle also supports the conclusion that this is last in the series rather than first. Suzuki gave an earlier series of lectures on the Genjo Koan at Sokoji in 1966 (see SR-66-03-13-A, SR-66-05-25, etc.). -- WKR, April 30, 2001. *** File name: 67-08-20: Genjō Kōan (Not Verbatim) Edited by Brian Fikes
