Takeaway

So I ask again as I did in the first and second part of this series. Is it possible, that after fifty years of learning and teaching that I have actually become a wise old man? Is it arrogant to even accept such a title….So what exactly is a rōshi. I can’t honestly say, though I am honored when my students, and now many of my peers refer to me in that way.
