"This book presents the varied Zen Center communities viscerally and clearly. Suzuki Roshi’s wonderful lectures, the talks by his disciples, the growing and shared understanding of practice and the honest effort and the high-standards of this seminal Sangha are clearly revealed. Wind Bell is a vital record of what making American Zen is."
—Peter Coyote, author of Sleeping Where I Fall: A Chronicle
