70-01-02 - Suzuki
comments on how to use upstairs and downstairs rooms at new building
(which is not what happened) and on oryoki (which was not to be used as
much as the thought it would be outside of Tassajara). I see my name
mentioned about something I don't recall. $50 donations to Peggy (Jiyu)
Kennet's group and Blue Mt. Meditation
Center (had no idea about this). Super low amounts to charge for
coming summer's Tassajara guest season and for people's stipends. Other
70-02-15- Yoshida Roshi (not Yoshida)
coming - female priest from Japan who taught us how to sew okesa and
rakusu, the vestments signifying ordination. She had studied with
Hashimoto who Katagiri studied with. It was that lineage, not Suzuki's
that this sewing came from.
70-02-16 - Statements by Sotan Tatsugami and
Shunryu Suzuki on establishing Buddhism in the West.
70-04-4,5 - Donnie Crockin (Don Deangelo) bread shop out of City Center.
Ed Brown's cook book - Tass. Bread Book?
discussion - if he latter, don't have the Shambhala contract yet but it
came out that year. Room and
board for City Center $90 a month, dorm charge $2.50 a night.
70-05-20,21 - - Ralph Silver and
crew go to Tassajara to film segment for film, Sunseed (now on
shunryusuzuki.com in film
section). Rohmer's film didn't happen. Wonder if they have any footage?
Beck's cabin didn't happen. Don't think Santa Barbara house happened. Dana
Fraser didn't go to Tassajara to translate for Tatsugami. Other little
stuff did happen.
70-07-22,23 - Couples don't
need to use same name, just need permission from Suzuki or Katagiri to
live together. $5,000 for building improvements City Center. New days they
allocate 20 or 30 times that much for a study. Dan Welch to be next board
meeting chair. [These days Dan is back in Santa Fe planning on opening a
small independent zendo].
71-12-17 - The first meeting after
Shunryu Suzuki died. Baker and Katagiri are now being called roshi. Don't
think Shunryu Suzuki's picture is used on altars in zendos as planned at
this meeting. Maybe it was for a while. Katagiri did preside over the 1972 winter-spring practice
period as he had the prior fall-winter one but none after that.
These are the last board and meeting notes in this series. It's the only
one for 1971 and there were clearly some missing from earlier years. Made
copies about twenty years ago in the records storage room at the City
Center of the SFZC. These are the only ones that were found there.
