Maka Hannya Haramita Shingyo
To mark the start of our summer Ango, we have placed a cherished gift at the head of the stairway in our Sangha house: a calligraphic rendering of the Maka Hannya Haramita Shingyo. This treasure was created and sent to us by Yamamoto Roshi, Dharma brother to Maezumi Roshi and successor of Koryu Roshi as Abbot of Hannya Dojo in Japan.
We are honored to represent Maezumi Roshi’s lineage both in our practice and by showcasing this generous artistic endowment from Yamamoto Roshi. In deep gassho.
Hazy Moon sangha member and journalist Nick Shindo Street interviews the author of Biocentrism, a book that Nyogen Roshi describes as mirroring his experiences in the practice of zazen as closely as anything he has encountered in a modern writer.
Tom Campbell, a professional physicist, has been at the forefront of a movement to shift the study of consciousness from the periphery to the center of modern scientific inquiry. Interview by Nick Shindo Street.
