Overview

   For the beginner, this book introduces the fundamental teachings of Buddhism in language direct, clear, unexotic; drawing straight from the well of our recognizable lives, Genpo's teachings remind with the pure resonance of the meditation bell: 'Don't waste time.'             - Jane Hirshfield, author of Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry        Zen Master Dennis Genpo Merzel brings clarity and wisdom to our most fundamental questions - Why do we suffer? How can we free ourselves from fear and sorrow? What does it take to live in harmony with others?        Merzel's pithy and provocative observations can be read individually for inspiration and guidance, or from beginning to end as a lucid introduction to Buddhist truths.  Supremely accessible, 24/7 Dharma applies the central concepts of Buddhism to our modern-day experience.   In a long tradition of Zen aphorisms and turning phrases, Roshi Genpo Merzel's brief, laconic Dharma teachings always point to one's own true nature.             - Zen Master Bernie Glassman, founder of the Zen Peacemaker Order
