The controversial Zen master D.T. Suzuki – missionary to the West, ideologue of Japan’s wartime violence

I was recently part of a panel discussion on BBC Radio 3’s ‘Free Thinking’ (18th February 2015), talking about Buddhism in modern Japan and its links to everything from mindfulness to ultranationalist violence.

On the panel were Rupert Gethin, Mark Vernon, Anne Mette Fisker-Nielsen, and myself. The discussion was chaired by Rana Mitter.
