Jacob Fishman's Photos

I just put up a podcast with Jake Fishman..(That's a link to the Cuke Podcast home, Podbean. Go to the Podcast page on for more options).

In the podcast he talks about taking photos in the zendo at Tassajara in the spring of 1974 while we were sitting zazen. He got special permission to do this. It's rarely been done. We are most fortunate to have these photos now - and not just because I was the shuso that practice period. This link is to the first one. To go to the next just tap on the right arrow.

The photo is one from his collection that he probably didn't take because it's of him.
