WHAT IS LIFE? WHERE DO WE COME FROM? WHERE DO WE GO?

What is life? Where do we come from? Where do we go? Experiencing God Though Zen Insight tackles these questions and more from the unique perspective of a contemporary American Zen Buddhist priest. The book dispels myths about Zen Buddhism and sheds new light on the subject through the author’s personal experiences and insights, giving the reader a look inside the world of intense Zen practice and training from her own firsthand experience. This book will challenge preconceived notions and stimulate a new way of thinking—from the inside out. In plain, direct language, the author presents a deeper logic that readers will find surprisingly pleasing and profoundly thought-provoking. We all want to experience heaven. Jesus and Buddha both pointed in the same direction, both saying that heaven is without particular form or particular location. So how do we find heaven? The answer is that there is no need to grasp. The kingdom of heaven is within you.

I found this book to be an eye-opening and thought provoking piece. It felt a little like viewing a beautiful puzzle of prisms, reflecting light on Zen in unexpected ways.. Educational in an amazing way.
