Peter Levitt

Peter Levitt is a poet, a translator, an editor and a well respected teacher of Zen Buddhism who lives on Salt Spring Island.  I have had the pleasure of talking to Peter several times on the show and I really appreciate the way he uses language, on the page and in his conversations.

 A while ago he told me about a big project he was involved in with a good friend of his; a translation of a major Buddhist text.  The book was published earlier this year by Shambhala Publications.
