RIP Nonin Chowaney

Dear friend. We haven't been in touch for so long. I was just thinking of calling you but we'll have to communicate through other means now. Gya te gya te!

Nonin was a dharma heir of Dainin Katagiri and the abbot of the Nebraska Zen Center, founded by Katagiri in 1975, until 2016. Here's the history page of that center with a bunch of photos with Nonin.
