Shinzen Young on meditation

31 Jul

Journalist Robert Wright interviews meditation teacher Shinzen Young on Bloggingheads. Watch the video or download the mp3. It is worth the time just to hear Shinzen Young’s story of how, growing up as a teenager in the Eisenhower era, an interest in Japanese Samurai movies led to an interest in Zen Buddhism.

Speaking of Samurai movies, I recommend The Tale of Zatoichi (Zatôichi Monogatari in Japanese, watch the 1962 original, not the remake).
