Zoketsu Norman Fischer (b. 1946)

Zoketsu Norman Fisher is a Soto Zen priest. I’ve attended almost a dozen of his one-day retreats and years ago participated in a Practice Period as a non-residential student. His sangha is Everyday Zen (http://www.everydayzen.org).

I’ve listened to many of his talks, too many to recommend one; so, here is a link to his 100s of talks:

“Enlightenment means to see what harm you are involved in and to renounce it.” David Brazier, The New Buddhism

“The most straightforward advice on awakening enlightened mind is this: practice not causing harm to anyone—yourself or others—and every day, do what you can to be helpful.” Pema Chodron, “What to Do When the Going Gets Rough”
