Della Goertz

When Shunryu Suzuki first came to America he was most fortunate to have a young Kazemitsu Kato as his guide into his new land. Kato was the priest who had been taking care of Sokoji ceremonies till the new priest arrived. Kato took him to his class on Buddhism. Three of his earliest and strongest students came from that class. Yesterday we featured Betty Warren. Today it's Della Goertz. If you read Della refering to Kaz, that's Kato.

That's Della on the far left in this 1964 photo, SR0165 in the photo archive - with some names

Della Goertz page with a great deal from her and on her.
