Norman gives a talk on Kodo Sawaki’s book “To You: Zen Sayings of Kodo Sawaki.” Kodo Sawaki (1860-1965) was often referred to as the “Homeless Monk” ¬†for his extensive travels through Japan to teach Zen as opposed to ¬†becoming a conventional abbot. He is considered one of the most influential Zen priest of his time for bringing Zen practice into the lives of laypeople and popularizing the ancient tradition of sewing the kesa.
