Overview

Fingers Pointing Towards the Moon was the first of a series of extraordinary spiritual manifestos written by the anonymous Wei Wu Wei. Like a master instructing every reader who has the dedication to read this book, the author maintains direct and unrelenting perspective, giving Fingers Pointing to the Moon its status as one of Zen Buddhism's essential classics. The depth of understanding evinced by Wei Wu Wei places him with Paul Reps, Alan Watts, and Philip Kapleau as one of the earliest and most profound interpreters of Zen.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
I cannot describe the innumerable intellectual frustrations I went through between Nisargadatta Maharaj and Wei Wu Wei. I repeatedly felt that the two of them had ganged up to have a private joke of their own at my expense. It was indeed a gang-up but, as I realized some time later, it was to bring about a sudden awakening in this body-mind mechanism called Ramesh.
—From the Foreword by Ramesh Balsekar, author of The Ultimate Understanding
