Zen at Work
Kaye-roshi explains with deceptive simplicity how practice “…prepares us to respond in a confident, caring way to whatever comes up in life…” even in the fast paced, high tech workplace. Kaye-roshi is a unique Zen master managing a family and a successful 30 year career at IBM while expanding and deepening his practice to become a lineage holder in the Soto Zen tradition. Suzuki-roshi ordained him as a priest in 1971. Kaye-roshi is one of three disciples Suzuki-roshi’s son Hoitsu gave transmission in order to complete, he felt, his father’s works after his death. Dan Geddes provides a wonderful review in the critical journal The Satirist.
