The first box "Don't Be Asshole" was made in October, 2000, inspired by Anzan Hozhin roshi's teisho 5 "A Fine Blend of Teas" from the series "Bodhidharma's Eyes" presented on October 11, 2000 during the Daruma-ki O-sesshin. The others followed when inspiration and found materials came together over the next five years. Please enjoy looking.
