Zen Is Right Here: Teaching Stories and Anecdotes of Shunryu Suzuki

the first anecdote:

One morning when we were all sitting zazen, Suzuki Roshi gave a brief impromptu talk in which he said, "Each of you is perfect the way you are…and you can use a little improvement."
------------- Ed Brown


4-14-14 - Zen Is Right Here is now available in Japanese as Zen wa Ima Koko.

The whole name, with subtitle, in Japanese appears to be long like the American version. (Zen Is Right Here: Teaching Stories and Anecdotes of Shunryu Suzuki, Author of "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind")

zen wa ima koko senkiyuuhiyakurokujiyuunendai amerika ni zen o hirometa suzuki shiyunriyuu no oshie to itsuwa (some weird romanization there maybe from translation software for web)

That translates as the Zen (is) Now Here: teaching of Shunryu Suzuki (who) spread Zen in Sixties America anecdotes

Here's a link to a page for the book on Yes Asia.

Issho Fujita wrote me that the translator is "Toru Shimakage, the president of Sangha, a Buddhist publishing company, maybe the most active in publishing books on Buddhism in Japan now. I just did proof reading and editing. And I wrote a commentary on the significance of Suzuki Roshi in Zen in America." More on Issho Fujita


9-15-12 - ZIRH is being posted all over the Internet posing as an ad campaign for men's skin care products  but which is actually a subliminal campaign to promote another ZIRH, namely
Zen Is Right Here: Teaching Stories and Anecdotes of Shunryu Suzuki.

letter from Mitsu Suzuki on To Shine One Corner of the World (posted 19-03-14)

6-16-12 - From yesterday's Who Is Meditating? : There is a Burmese saying, "You are not meditating, meditation is meditating."

Reminds me of:

"Don't ever think that you can sit zazen! That's a big mistake! Zazen sits zazen!"

from ZEN IS RIGHT HERE: Teaching Stories and Anecdotes of Shunryu Suzuki


It's in some other languages. Here's the Romanian cover:
