Homage to Gudo Nishijima

Without FM Alexander's teaching I would never have understood the real meaning of Master Dogen's words "Just wake up."
Without Gudo Wafu Nishijima's teaching I would never even have heard of those words.
Homage to Gudo Wafu Nishijima. That stubborn, opinionated, irrepressible old man.
I hate him deeply. I prostrate myself to him wholeheartedly.

I pay homage to Chodo Cross and Gudo Nishijima.

I have just received my first installment of the Shobogenzo.

Mike, it is a beautiful peace of scholarly work. Seriously impressive. For that you have my utmost respect.

The extensive footnotes are essential to help capture subtleties that can be lost when translating things and helps others to cross-check (no pun) the flavour of the translation.

[I have actually decided to not post on your blog, but sometimes I feel posting is more appropriate/necessary!]
