 The 2nd Contest

What is the question most frequently asked me, DC - host of this site, about Shunryu Suzuki? 

This contest is over. Go here to see the entries and the true answer.

Talking to friends or strangers about Shunryu Suzuki, in conversations or email arising from, at the signings for the books I've done on him - Crooked Cucumber, or To Shine One Corner of the World, in interviews, or just generally shooting the breeze, I've been asked one thing over and over. It clearly stands out as the most frequently asked question. What is it? Guess it right and win a valuable prize! And good luck!

More than one entry is permitted but each entry must be submitted in a separate email. Our panel of judges will consider the entries and announce a winner when we feel the time is right. Hints to follow. 

The prize for the first correct answer will be a copy of To Shine One Corner of the World: Moments with Shunryu Suzuki.

Submit answers to dchad3(at)sonic(dot)net

Family members, publishing associates, anyone who I've talked to about this subject and told the answer to, or anyone who learns from any of them, are not eligible to enter unless they submit erroneous or ridiculous entries.
