A Brief History of Tassajara

From Native American Sweat Lodges to Pioneering Zen Monastery

with a Foreword by David Chadwick from Cuke Press,
a project of Cuke Archives


This book is based on a scrapbook that sat for years in the office of Tassajara Springs, Zen Mountain Center, deep in the mountains of Monterey County, California. It was put together by Marilyn McDonald who was a frequent guest at Tassajara from the mid-seventies to mid-eighties. From the day she arrived she was fascinated with the history of the place, did extensive research and many interviews. Marilyn passed away January, 2017, and a combination of her friends, family, and a few of us Zennies put a lot of effort into polishing it up and making it widely available.

Wisdom Is Like Outer Space

Jnana is a Sanskrit word that literally means “primordial insight.” That is to say, it is insight, understanding, clarity, oneness. Jnana is a state of discriminating wisdom that always occurs rather than being produced by temporary experience of any kind. It is an inherent state of being. So jnana is like outer space, which is inherently outer space. In spite of stars, moons, galaxies, and planets of all kinds, nevertheless, it is basic space. Outer space is inherently empty and inherently rich at the same time, like jnana, wisdom.

— From “Wash Your Dishes and Take Off Your Roof,” in Glimpses of Space: The Feminine Principle and Evam, pages 79 to 80.
