Jundo Roshi's upcoming book

Post by desert_woodworker » Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:13 pm

I look forward to the appearance of Jundo Roshi's upcoming book which he disclosed here that he is writing with a a coauthor who is a Theoretical Physicist. I don't know how long such projects take, but maybe a year or two?

I'll look for newly released books occasionally (actually, I suppose many of us are on lists that virtually ensure that the books will come looking for US).

Although I've expressed some displeasure here about what I feel are excesses of Dogen apologists ("too much of a good thing", and maybe better done the first time), nonetheless Jundo's new book may have a different flavor, we can only guess at this point. The inclusion of the Physicist (also a practitioner? I'll presume) is an especially tantalizing and attractive element that also makes me look forward to this work.

Too, it will be good to have a lot or much of Jundo's thought (available) in one place.

I like very much Jundo Roshi's previous book, A Heart to Heart Chat on Buddhism with Old Master Gudo (Expanded Edition) (2015),
by Gudo Wafu Nishijima and Jundo Cohen.

best wishes all,

--Joe

I'll look for something on Jundo Roshi's site about any reference to the upcoming co-authored book. I haven't yet done that. --Joe

Well, no, I see nothing on Jundo Roshi's "Treeleaf" website regarding a book in process/progress. Maybe naturally: early-days.

Best, Jundo, and Theoretical Physicist co-author.

Standing by,

A few more weeks have passed. No news.

I'll take it that this may "mean" that the principals are working hard on the contents.

I'll stop commenting on this monitoring now, for a year or so. With wishes,
