Abbot and founder of the Zen Center of Los Angeles, the Venerable Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi Roshi (1931-1995) was one of the most influential modern Zen masters. Devoted to establishing Zen Buddhism as a vital spiritual practice in the West, he inspired thousands of students, diligently training a new generation of teachers, including Bernard Tetsugen Glassman, Joko Beck, Dennis Genpo Merzel (author of 24/7 Dharma), and John Daido Loori.
Based on dharma talks given by Maezumi Roshi in 1987, Teaching of the Great Mountain presents his teachings in the imitable style of "live words." The first collection of talks given by Maezumi Roshi, Teaching of the Great Mountain includes: The Echoless Valley (based on three talks given on the Sutra of the Seven Wise Sisters), The Koan Mu, Kanzeon Bodhisattva (also known as Kwan Yin), and the Zen Art of Just "Sitting."About the Author
Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi Roshi (1931-1995) was an ordained Buddhist monk in both the Soto and Rinzai Zen traditions. He came to America in 1956 as a priest at the Zenshuji temple in Los Angeles, the North American headquarters of the Soto Zen School, where he founded the Zen Center of Los Angeles in 1967. During the next 28 years he established five other temples throughout the U.S. and Europe, as well as over thirty sitting groups and centers throughout the world. He gave formal Dharma transmission to twelve successors, ordained sixty-eight Zen monks, and gave lay Buddhist precepts to more than 500 students. In 1976 he established the Kuroda Institute for the Study of Buddhism and Human Values.
