Dogen went to China about 1200 to practice Chan. On his return he established Eiheiji (ji means temple so it would be redundant to say Eiheiji Temple) and is associated with Soto Zen, zazen and working in the kitchen.

One thought on “Tim, ting and fait

  1. I used to work at 45 Hyde, and remember lunch strolls up Polk over several hills, past the original Banana Republic and maybe even lunch at a McDonalds that had been designed by William Stout when he was an architect before being a bookseller, or I may be inventing a 1980s that was more forgiving than the one that was actually exploding in those neighborhoods at the time. My two regular lunch companions from those years are now gone, and those streets are a bit different too.
