"Wherever you go you will find your teacher, as long as you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear."
- Shunryu Suzuki
Shunryu was apparently born on May 18, 1904 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. Standing 4'11" he appeared to be a Soto Zen priest and seemingly spent his entire life in and out of monasteries. He stressed that meditation was an expression of true nature, not a means to enlightenment. His style is nothing special.
It is uncertain where or when Seng-ts'an was apparently born and very little is known about his life at all. He was the third patriarch of zen and is credited as being the author of the Hsin Hsin Ming. He taught that truth could not be sought anywhere, and that liberation is simply a matter of discarding untruth. His style is sparing and direct.
