The Way of Zazen
by Rindo Fujimoto Roshi
The Whole book on one page - new 10/19/16
This booklet was edited and published by Elsie Mitchell of the Cambridge Buddhist Association in 1966. Suzuki Roshi made it available for a dollar or so out of his office, the only book I remember being sold at Sokoji back then. It hasn't been available for a long time so I put it on the site here. Read on - it's only 26 pages long. - DC
Next - how this tiny book, one of the very first on Soto Zen, came about. Fujimoto Roshi was one of Elsie Mitchell's teachers and one of a handful of Soto masters that Shunryu Suzuki greatly respected at the time that he came to America.
The original booklet italicized almost all foreign words with each use. In this version they are only italicized on the first use. Other than that and the elimination of diacritic marks, only a few commas were changed.
