Hoitsu Suzuki

Hoitsu Suzuki is the son of San Francisco Zen Center's founding teacher, Shunryu Suzuki. He visits Zen Center intermittently, often to assist with formal ceremonies, such as the Mountain Seat (installation of abbots/abbesses) and events related to the history and teachings of Suzuki Roshi. He is generally addressed as Hojo-san. He is abbot of Rinso-in, Shunryu Suzuki's temple in Japan, and has recently held the prestigious teaching position of Tanto at Eiheiji, the main Soto Zen temple in Japan.
