Podcast with Peter 🔊
Peter wrote: Funny - I realized afterwards that I forgot to talk about how the sangha was formed as a reaction to 9/11 and so I gave the wrong date ie 2000 for our start rather than Oct 2001. Age and memory, the occasional dance partners.
September 2022- See Peter's letter on his new book, Yin Mountain: The Immortal Poetry of Three Daoist Women
Peter Levitt is a Zen teacher in the Shunryu Suzuki lineage who has published many books of poetry. He's worked with Kazuaki Tanahashi on translations of Dogen and more for years and with others on other translations. His website is peterlevitt.com and his Zen group is Salt Spring Zen Circle - saltspringzencircle.org.
Peter Levitt sent us a copy of a Tozan poem Suzuki wrote out in kanji, translated, and gave to his disciple, Bill Kwong. Bill gave Peter, his long-time student, a copy.
I am very happy to announce that after three years of diligent and truly
joyous work, my new book, Yin Mountain: The Immortal Poetry of
Three Daoist Women, translated from the Chinese of the Tang
Dynasty more than 1200 years ago, is now available for preorder at a
30% discount from Shambhala Publications. That brings the price down
to about $14 in the US and $17.50 in Canada. Not bad for what's been
called ground breaking new work.
I have to admit, it's so wonderful to have such a great publisher who is going all out to make this book available to readers. Please take a look at the beautiful attached cover and the endorsements to see what the book is about.
Now, back to the discount: In order to receive the discount, please go to https://www.shambhala.com/yin-mountain.html and use this code as written: YIN30 Just put it in the order form under Discount Code.
"This code is valid only on shambhala.com through January 13, 2023. Enter code in shopping cart. It cannot be combined with other offers."
I thank you for taking a look and possibly picking up a copy for yourself or a friend, or for sending this email to a friend, who may find the book to their liking. My co-translator Rebecca Nie and I loved creating this book, and we thank you for your consideration.
very best wishes to all
