3-17-13 - Lew Richmond on Huff post on emptiness
"Emptiness" is also the term that my own teacherShunryu Suzuki used, though he usually added context. Once, speaking of emptiness he said, "I do not mean voidness. There is something, but that something is something which is always prepared for taking some particular form." Another time, speaking of the feeling tone of emptiness, he said, "Emptiness is like being at your mother's bosom and she will take care of you."
Lewis is also active on
magazine's online community site.
on Facebook and Twitter.
Lew Richmond played an important role in getting Shunryu Suzuki disciples' meetings going.
His support for this work to preserve the legacy of Shunryu Suzuki has also been crucial at times.
