Norman Fischer
In this dharma talk and discussion Norman Fischer presents his just-out book “When You Greet Me I Bow: Notes and Reflections from a Life in Zen,” a collection of thirty years of his Dharma essays, with his own contemporary reflections. Covering topics as wide-ranging as what is a Zen teacher, racism and Buddhism, politics and religion, women in Zen, and the dialogic nature of Zen practice, the book is a broad look at the Buddhist movement in the West, its challenges and changes over the decades. Norman reads a bit, talks a bit, and opens for conversation and exploration.
