Audio tapes of Shunryu Suzuki lectures
and at some point a few interviews

This section is antiquated. All Shunryu Suzuki audio now is at

5-03-11 - Some Shunryu Suzuki lecture audio in the archive were fixed.

67-12-01A and 67-12-02

67-12-04 and/or 6712-04A was just renamed as 67-12-02.

The file named 67-12-02 had the second half of 67-12-01A and something else. It was just a mistake. My bad because I listened to the beginning of every tape to compare with the first line of the transcript. I guess that was one I planned to get back to to figure out and then forgot about. But now it's fixed.

The fixed files are in their rightful place on and also in

Only 16k mp3s - the 32k mp3s are too big to load from here in India, at least where I go to upload.

And for taking so long to get to this, my apologies to Charlie Pokorny of Suzuki Roshi dot SFZC dot org where all the Suzuki lectures are going up one by one in a better presentation than on - dc

2-21-09 - Listen to the earliest recording of a Shunryu Suzuki lecture that we have - and/or read a verbatim transcription - July 26, 1965.

1-26-09 - A very good film with Shunryu Suzuki Roshi footage synched with tape of lecture he was giving, recent Tassajara footage with Suzuki lecture voice over. Put together by Mel Van Dussen. Thanks for the tip to Howie Klein

3-29-08 - In 1968 Shunryu Suzuki gave two talks at Esalen Institute. These talks are available through Big Sur Tapes.

You can also buy the audio book of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind read by Peter Coyote through that link but cuke suggests you get that through the SFZC Bookstore.

I'm sure the bookstore could carry the Esalen lectures too but I bet they don't. I'll talk to Diane who heads the store about it. Going to the site I don't see any mention of Shunryu Suzuki lecture audio tapes for sale. They've got some - they just play hard to get.

I see they've got a listing for Suzuki Roshi DVD - see Shunryu Video dept. for that
