I heard few of his lectures and sat my first
couple sesshins with Suzuki Roshi and Katagiri. Had dokusan with Katagiri.
I was sitting there at 8:30 at night, wiggling in pain, when Suzuki Roshi
said, "Someday you may be dying of cancer and there will be nothing you
can do. DON"T MOVE!"
Little did I know. But I remember him talking about "things as it is"
deliberately mixing plural and singular.
I never actually engaged him, but was rather intimidated and awed so never
spoke with him. but I gather he gave out a lot of Metta (loving kindness).
