Transcripts default to ordinary web pages which are updated with many corrections made over time. Since the quality of the audio files is often lacking, as is our hearing ability, there are undoubtedly gaps, mistakes and ambiguities in the transcripts. Gaps are usually marked with a series of question marks: ???. Uncertain words are usually followed by a question mark in brackets: [?].

Many audio and edited versions are also available.
Suggested Edited Versions have been edited for readability.
Recently added or significantly updated versions of Shunryu Suzuki lectures are here.
