I sat in Oakland on Monday night...David Weinstein was teaching. A video of his talk can be found on dharma talks link.
The thing David said that is still resonating with me is: "When someone begs, that is asks you for something without offering anything in return, the buddha is extending you a gift- the opportunity to give".
“A Course on Koans” is the delusion-riddled work of Chris Kufu (“Wind in the Void”) Wilson, who began practicing Zen in 1967. He regards Taizan Maezumi, Robert Aitken, and David Weinstein as his root teachers. Each of them pecked at his shell until he “completed” the never-ending koan curriculum of the Harada-Yasutani lineage.
