I might have found a teacher.

I had a fortuitous and totally unexpected phone conversation with Nishijima-san, the Tokyo-based Soto monk and founder of Dogen Sangha. During our conversation I told him that I can't find a teacher and he offered to teach me and has invited me to Tokyo to meet him and "study Buddhism together". I have accepted his offer and I will make arrangements to go as see him hopefully some time this month.


  1. Excellent! A teacher is a gift, we need someone to help guide the 'monkey mind' to it's ground. Please keep us posted.

  2. Let the trees, rocks and clouds be your teacher. Go to this man once you have realised the Truth as this will be the start of your journey and you will make more of your time together.
