Dainin Katagiri Roshi: A Conversation

I recently had a talk with my old friend, Rick Bryan McDaniel, about my old teacher Dainin Katagiri Roshi for his "Zen Conversations and Profiles" series - Click. You will find many powerful interviews at his site, by the way.

Also, if you are looking at our Vine of Obstacles Zen site without a subscription, you'll see posts for "Members Only" and "Paid-Members Only." Members are free subscribers - so if you subscribe, all those posts will then be open to you as well.

You are also welcome, of course, to become a paid subscriber and support our work with your donations.
