previous --- next

"Why do you shave your head?" a visitor asked Suzuki Roshi after a lecture at Sokoji.

Suzuki rubbed his head and answered, "It's the fundamental hair style!"

p.108. Mel Weitsman, Sokoji, circa 1966.

DC note: He'd get asked this now and then. I also remember him saying, "It's the ultimate in hair styling."
