Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi

Zen Mountain Monastery, New York, Saturday 04/02/2022

In this talk, Shugen Roshi speaks about the importance of having a connection with our dharma ancestors. How we should appreciate the great heart-felt efforts that were made to allow us to have the opportunity to train and practice today. Roshi shares with us some of the early days of Zen Mountain Monastery, as well as the efforts put forth by Daido Roshi, his teacher Maezumi Roshi, two of Maezumi’s teachers, Yasutani Roshi and Koryu Roshi, as well as all the students who were training with them.
