Shunryu Suzuki Transcript

Saturday, May 2, 1964

Reverend Suzuki said that this [strain of kitchen work] was quite usual, and that was why in monasteries in Japan, only the most sincere students were put on kitchen duty. He said that for sesshins which include a Sunday, it may be better to prepare some simple meal in advance, as often the Japanese group uses the kitchen on that day.
