Wednesday Evening Study Group
Shitou’s “Song of the Grass-Roof Hermitage"
Steve Matuszak will be leading the Wednesday evening study group in exploring the eighth century Zen Master Shitou’s celebrated poem, “Song of the Grass-Roof Hermitage.” Starting from the image of monk living in his modest hut, Shitou creates a rich poem that points to reality and how to realize it in daily life.
