A translation of a key text by Omori Sogen (1904-1994), one of the foremost Zen teachers of the 20th century. He discusses aspects of the physical nature of training, such as breath, pain, posture, and state of mind, as well as the context in which Zen training takes on meaning. He explains the rationale for "zazen", gives instructions for sitting "zazen", and addresses questions that commonly arise as training begins. Includes commentaries on two Zen texts, plus b&w photos. For general readers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
