Video—Suzuki Roshi Discusses the Sandokai: Sound and Noise

This film of Shunryu Suzuki Roshi is an excerpt from a talk he gave at Tassajara in 1971 on the poem Sandokai (trans: The Harmony of Difference and Equality). These lectures became the basis of the book, Branching Streams Flow in the Darkness. This clip is part of a collection of films about Suzuki Roshi called "One Particle of Dust" which appeared at the Buddhist International Film Festival in 2005.
