my wish for you

taizan-maezumi“In your daily life, please accept yourself as you are and your life as it is. Be intimate with yourself. I want you to take advantage of every chance you have to become a really intimate being.”

Taizan Maezumi Roshi was founder and long-time teacher of the Los Angeles Zen Center. He is my Dharma grandfather by way of being the teacher of my teacher, Jan Chozen Bays Roshi, co-abbess of Great Vow Zen Monastery. Note: “roshi” is a honorific given to senior teachers in the Zen tradition; from the Japanese for “old teacher.”
