Roshi Robert “Bob” Kennedy

Roshi Bob is a Jesuit priest and one of the first non-Buddhists to receive Dharma Transmission in our lineage. He is my older, senior brother in the Dharma lineage. After Jishu passed, I began to do Koans with Bob in Jersey City, which lasted six years. Bob raised me in the dharma, in the Buddha Way. He was always generous. He embodies extraordinary humility and openness and taught me to appreciate the gifts which I have been given.
