Seperately - PDF of a newly discovered Shunryu Suzuki lecture which was used as the epilogue for this draft of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind.  This lecture now named 67-03-00 and will be included with the transcript record in a day or two. It was given after his return from the East Coast in March 1967 I think.

Named Epilogue: Some Personal Reflections, it is now in the transcript record on as 67-03-00.

All these chapters/lectures are now available individually on Go to the ZMBM Chart where they have their own column.

Or, go to the New Search Form and look in the dropdown menu for Other Associated Files and choose Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind Draft.

Was calling this an early draft but realized we have Marian Derby's "Beginner's Mind" from a few years earlier so now am calling this a "late draft." - DC

- Sent to DC by Ted Hensold after Daya Goldschlag's noble scanning. It surely means it dates back to when Daya (Dianne then) and I were together and married [68-73-76]. I don't remember this draft but that doesn't mean anything. I think the order of the editor's names may be alphabetical. It's most interesting that Marian's name is there because I have thought of Trudy as having started her initial work on new transcripts made from the tapes. This makes me think that either Marian's transcripts were referred to or that her essential role in making the book is being honored by the inclusion of her name as an editor - I'll bet Trudy wrote who the editors were. Eventually only Trudy was named as an editor. This was Richard Baker's choice at the time, a choice I think he sort of regrets though it's no big deal. 

Thanks again Daya Goldschlag for scanning that manuscript and to her hubby Ted Hensold for sending the scan to us and to Peter Ford for preparing all of the chapters/lectures of this draft for - and everything else. Access to them posted tomorrow. - DC
