7/19/99--from Chris Miller. - Dear David, Great to see you--and everyone--at the Suzuki Roshi archive meeting at Green Gulch yesterday. Perhaps I can help with the date of Trungpa's visit to Tassajara. I was there most of the time from summer 1970 until April 1972. When Trungpa came to Tassajara I was a doan, which means it had to be spring of 1971.

Incidentally, during one of Suzuki Roshi's last visits to Tassajara in 1971, he gave a very intense short talk in which he stood up from sitting on his zafu and even paced around a bit on the platform beside the altar. All I can remember is he paused and said with great conviction, "I want disciples who will follow me through life and death!" Yours in the Dharma, Chris
