QuotationI know the work of the Fathers you mention and have reviewed Fr. [H.M.] Enomiya[-Lasalle]'s book [Zen, Weg zur Erleuchtung] for a magazine of our Order. In fact they tried to arrange for me to come to Japan and visit some Zen centers, which I would like very much to do. Unfortunately it was not possible to obtain permission for this from my religious superiors. I very much regret it.
Quotation SourceHonorable Reader: Reflections on my Work.; Edited by Robert E. Daggy. Revised and expanded edition. / New York : Crossroad Publishing Company. 1989, p. 146-47
