Officially getting Tassajara up and running as a Zen monastery

Tassajara, Zen Mt. Center, Zenshinji, Opening Program - July 3, 1967. It says "preliminary opening." I don't remember any other.

I prefer calling Tassajara a practice center to monastery, the later being a place for monks to be monos, alone. But on the other hand, a lot of words don't quite express what they originally meant. - dc
