Suzuki lectures    Earliest lectures intro and index

A light edit of a Shunryu Suzuki lecture dated
August 5, 1965

Read the apparently verbatim version of this lecture - exactly as it was transcribed back then. Location of tape now is unknown.

Gordon Geist, who's been making these "light edits" for us for years, sent this note with this lecture a little over a month ago. The verbatim version was posted earlier this year. - dc

[See On finding the transcriptions of the original lectures that Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind was edited from - and more.]

This is one of 48 lectures found In working on a report on the Shunryu Suzuki archives. See Earliest lectures intro and index.
