Sources: City Center transcript and original tape. The last three paragraphs were transferred from SR-67-12-04, where they had been incorrectly entered. Blanche Hartman was kind enough to refer the transcriber to R.D.M. Shaw's version of The Blue Cliff Records, which is the version that Suzuki would have consulted. Transcript checked against tape and made verbatim by Bill Redican (3/31/01). 1Suzuki is reading from Case 53 of BCR, modifying it slightly as he reads (R.D.M. Shaw, trans. And ed., The Blue Cliff Records: The Hekigan Roku. London: Michael Joseph, 1961, p. 177). *** File name: 67-12-02: inner power of practice (titled by pf) (Verbatim) speeds up wrong audio fixed
