Overview

What is life? Where do we come from? Where do we go? What is self? The book discusses these questions and many other topics. The author challenges our preconceived way of thinking and stimulates a new way of "thinking" from the inside out. The author stimulates deeper thinking and perhaps what might be called a deeper "logic". This book dispels myths about Zen Buddhism and sheds new light on the subject through the personal experiences and insights of a contemporary American Zen Buddhist priest. The author speaks in a voice that is plain and direct. She has been an avid student and practitioner of Zen Buddhism since 1968, when she began study at the age of nineteen. Later she became an osho (priest-teacher) in 1989. Her teacher is a high-level master from Japan. The author dares to answer such questions as, "What is the foundation of existence?" She handles such subjects authoritatively from the perspective of firsthand spiritual experience, revelation, if you will, while employing an intellect that springs from that firsthand experience in conjunction with the foundation of study that includes important Buddhist sutras and scriptures, her master's teisho (spiritual transmission lectures) and his direct, personal teaching, along with the entire spectrum of Zen training. The direct and personal study with a master is done through koan practice that includes frequent private interviews called "sanzen". The firsthand experience is based upon years of meditation and sincere study intermixed with intense training periods with the master as well as application of practice in all aspects of everyday life. She gives the reader a look inside the world of intense Zen practice and training with the front-row seat of her own experience. The subjects of human nature versus one's True Nature, and human consciousness versus Absolute Mind, are discussed various ways. This not only stimulates individual thinking, it gives the reader a taste of the Zen mind, which

    I found this book to be an eye-opening and thought provoking pie

    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.
