    The serenity within each poem transports you into the state of consciousness possessed by this wonderful translation and enlightened Zen Master. 
    You can visualize the surroundings that are spoken of and feel the Zen emanating through your entire being as you read these precious words. I felt as though, I was there with the Zen Master as he was writing these words. 
    This translation is a beautiful piece of work, you can tell it was done with care. 
    I loved the introduction, it gave a deeper look into the life of this Zen Master and explained the history of the time period. Beautifully done!
