A lot of people quote my books (in various languages) on Twitter. Thanks! I'm glad you find my words inspirational. I personally don't Tweet but Quote Delight took it to a new level with this nice photograph. :-)

This quote is from the book, Zen O'clock: Time to Be.

Here is a piece of history that some of you may find interesting. One of the things that I do is to read historically-based submitted manuscripts for publishers when they are in the final stages of deciding whether to publish the work or not and want someone to give the book a final appraisal as to its factuality. Major publishers also send me advanced copies of books they are about to publish when they feel I have knowledge about the subject and want me to write a review about the book. Here is the letter Random House sent me in 1991 in association with the book, Hank. This book remains the best biography written about Charles Bukowski.

I was kicking around a library last week and I noticed one of my books on the shelf. Here's a bad selfie. :-)

Every now and then I wonder just how many libraries around the world offer my books to their members?

The Swami Satchidanada Microphone.

Here is an interesting piece of history for you… This is the microphone I used when I did the sound for my teacher Swami Satchidananda in the 1970s. He gave so many lectures through this microphone. It probably still has his DNA on it. The interesting thing is that by my nature I am not a nostalgic person—I throw or give pretty much everything away. Somehow I still have this microphone. :-)

Author’s Note: It never ceases to amaze me—the ongoing discussion people have regarding the birth, ideology, and the techniques of Zen Filmmaking. …I get questions all the time. To provide some basic answers, here is an article I wrote about a decade ago on the subject...

Here's the link to an interview I did a couple of years ago. It really spells out the all and the everything about Zen Filmmaking.

This interview was originally published in a German magazine and then in a couple of other international journals.
