Maurine Myoon Stuart, Dai Osho (1922-1990) was a famous Zen teacher in the U.S. at Yellow Springs Dharma Center in Ohio and also taught at other Buddhist centers. Her teachings were collected by her student, Roko Sherry Chayat and published under the title Subtle Sound (Shambhala, 1996). Stuart Roshi, a student of Soen Nakagawa Roshi, lived most of her life in Massachusetts, where she served the Cambridge Buddhist Association as a Rinzai Zen Priest. She was a concert pianist, and also raised a family. She passed away in 1990 at the age of 68, after a long struggle with cancer. As Pat Hawk says, "[her] talks are simple, direct, and exactly to the point."
