Estratto della conferenza tenuta dal Maestro Zen Shohaku Okumura a Roma il 29 marzo 2012 organizzata dal Centro Zen Anshin presso lo Spazio Paema - Fondazione Maitreya.

Shohaku Okumura, nato a Osaka nel 1948, si è laureato all'università Komazawa. Nel 1970 ha preso l'ordinazione monastica al monastero Antaiji di Kyoto, divenendo discepolo di Kosho Uchiyama Roshi che, cinque anni dopo, l'ha nominato suo successore nel Dharma nel lignaggio di Kodo Sawaki Roshi. Dopo un periodo di formazione al monastero Zuioji, si è recato in Massachusetts, dove ha praticato fino al 1981 al Pioneer Valley Zendo. Dal 1995 al 2010 è stato direttore del Soto Zen Buddhism International Center di San Francisco, e attualmente vive e insegna a Bloomington, Indiana, dove ha fondato la Sanshin Zen Community. A lui si deve la traduzione dal giapponese di molti testi fondamentali della tradizione zen Soto: scritti di Dogen Zenji, quali lo Shobogenzo Zuimonki e il Bendowa, e del suo maestro Kosho Uchiyama Roshi, di cui ha curato il volume Aprire la mano del pensiero.
Il suo ultimo libro "Genjokoan" è stato recentemente pubblicato da Ubaldini Editore.

Excerpt of the lecture given by Zen Master Shohaku Okumura in Rome March 29, 2012 at Spazio Paema - Maitreya Foundation.

Shohaku Okumura was born in Osaka in 1948; he graduated from Komazawa University. In 1970 he took monastic ordination at Antaiji monastery Kyoto, becoming disciple of Kosho Uchiyama Roshi who, five years later, appointed him as his Dharma successor in the lineage of Kodo Sawaki Roshi. After a period of training at the monastery Zuioji, he traveled to Massachusetts, where he practiced until 1981 at Pioneer Valley Zendo. From 1995 to 2010 he has been director of the Soto Zen Buddhism International Center in San Francisco, and currently lives and teaches in Bloomington, Indiana, where he founded the Sanshin Zen Community. To him we owe the translation from Japanese of many basic texts of the Soto Zen tradition: the writings of Dogen Zenji, such as the Shobogenzo Zuimonki and BENDOWA, and of his teacher Kosho Uchiyama Roshi, of which he edited Open the hand of thought.
His latest book "Genjokoan" was recently published in Italy by Ubaldini Publisher.
