St 3: Docho Roshi. The year that I have lived here at Tassajara has gone by very quickly. But it’s been a very wonderful time for growing up. But the path ahead seems to be a dream or shadows –

SR: Yes. That is very true. We always feel that we uh started to study something right now. Especially when ah Christmas or New Years Day come. We start our practice right now or we must start some practice today. We always feel in this way. That is I think very good. And that is so called beginner’s mind. We should be always beginners.
