  • About this Author
author spotlight

Soen Nakagawa Roshi (1907-1984) was an extraordinary Zen master and a key figure in the transmission of Zen Buddhism from Japan to the Western world. A man of many faces, he was a simple Japanese monk, a world traveler, a spiritually realized being of the highest order, a poetic genius, a creator of dynamic calligraphy–and a notorious eccentric teacher who, for example, was known to conduct “tea ceremonies” using instant coffee and Styrofoam cups.
