Saturday talks

Here you can find recordings of some of the talks Nishijima Roshi gave every Saturday afternoon from 1977 – 2000 at the Tokyo University Young Buddhists Association in Hongo Sanchome, Tokyo. At the start of each talk, Sensei would talk on a general topic and give his view on its relationship to Buddhhism. Then he would continue with his lecture on the Shobogenzo, based on our ongoing English translation. The recordings are in chronological order.
