Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Clear, crisp, and intimate. Readers new to the subject will gain a clear perspective on Zen practice as it really is, and seasoned practitioners will find much here to support and clarify practice. This will also appeal to readers interested in the development of Buddhism in America and how the essentials of a tradition can adapt to the demands of the modern world."— Library Journal

A must for every Zen library."—John Daido Loori Roshi, Abbot of the Zen Mountain Monastery and author of The Eight Gates of Zen

"Genpo Roshi gives those who have never meditated a chance to see their true face and experience the oneness of life."—Roshi Bernie Glassman, author of Infinite Circle

"The value of this original book lies not only in its clear presentation of Zen teaching, but also in the long experience and the depth of insight of its author."—Roshi Robert Jinsen Kennedy, author of Zen Spirit, Christian Spirit , and Zen Gifts to Christians
