Not too long ago, someone called me a ‘Zen writer’. I consider that a great compliment! And I think it’s true: most of my stories have some ‘Zen’ in it. But please remember to think of them as stories, not teachings.
My biggest achievement so far is my book , in which I tell stories about my time in Zen monastery Sogenji. At the moment I am working on a translation in English (with the help of friends who edit the text for me). I will be pre-publishing some of these stories on this website. The first one - TOSU KUMI - is online now. If you’d like to read it, look here ( http://bertdesu.
