A good film. We have a VHS copy from years ago that was sold under the title "Zen, In Search of Enlightenment".

It provides a glimpse into the life of an unsui (novice monk) at a Rinzai sodo (training monastery) in Japan.

A good film. That is the kind of practice I have learned in the early years in our Sangha.
