21-02-15 - Shunryu Suzuki gave a talk at Grace Cathedral in June, 1968

Received the following in an email today (message below). I cut and pasted the pertinent parts below from the publication.

Hi David, I hope this email finds you doing well (under the circumstances).  We met back in 2009 at the 50th anniversary event for Suzuki Roshi coming to America, I was one of the speakers for the UC Berkeley academic side of the festivities.  My talk was on the transition of American Zen from counterculture into a successful subculture.

While going through some materials for a research project I’m conducting on Engaged Pure Land Buddhism, I came across a tidbit I thought you might not have, and when I searched at, I didn’t turn it up.  So, I’m attaching it here, in case it’s useful for your ongoing project..

Best wishes,
