caged and uncaged

Soen Nakagawa Roshi, then abbot of Ryutaku-ji (monastery) in Japan, stands before an open but secured window during a going-away party given for him in New York on July 28, 1982. He would never return to the United States.


  1. Where was this?

    Please give some detail to this possibly dramatic situation.

  2. The party took place at Jochi George Zournas' townhouse in Greenwich village. Nothing dramatic ... almost everyone, including Soen, was tiddly.
