Roshi Philip Kapleau the individual is born and dies in every moment of his life, and continues to exist. The same truth applies at the time of death. The significant role that Roshi Philip Kapkeau bequeathed in the West with regard to the scope, impact, teachings of Zen, especially for those who are fully identified with the Zen providing for our spiritual growth cannot be denied. Us reminds users. Lycos. It is that Philip Kapleau (1912) was the fifth of six children in an American family under the pressure of poverty and where they often had to resort to social assistance.
For fifteen years he was the youngest of the brothers, until another was born unwanted by the mother. Things worsened even more, the mother rejected him and considered him his ‘disgrace’. It caused him pain the humiliations that object was her brother; I felt compassion for him and later felt them for the difficulties of his mother. The hatred and resentment that her mother felt towards his father, in the cruel and humiliating manner with which this was the little brother of Philip, was a lifestyle that he rejected drawing. He received no love for none of their parents, from the beginning felt different from everyone in his family.
His parents enzarzaban in fights constantly. I felt resentment towards her mother by the way in this attacking her husband. Philip began to work very soon and to assume responsibilities. After graduating from high school he began working as a court Rapporteur in several courts. In many trials she could see families fighting for a property or couples to face by obtaining the divorce. The people showed the worst of itself, all his hatred and bitterness; He did not accept that she herself was the cause of his own misery and they missed the blame to others: had before their eyes what they had seen so many times in his mother.
