Overview

One of the leading twentieth-century works on Zen, D.T. Suzuki's Zen and Japanese Culture is an invaluable source for those wishing to understand Zen concepts in the context of Japanese life and art.

Zen and the Love of Nature takes us on a captivating journey from a single lotus flower to a rippling brook to the grandeur of Mount Fuji, giving us a Zen perspective of the joy and beauty of our world, of Nature as our constant friend and companion, and of the love of Nature that is the predominant note in the Japanese character.

In simple, often poetic language, extensively enhanced by anecdotes and poetry, D.T. Suzuki guides us to a new appreciation and understanding of the joy, wonder and beauty of the world around us—leading us to a new freedom and emancipation from the pressures and demands of our daily life.

From a single lotus flower to a rippling brook to the grandeur of Mount Fuji--a Zen perspective of the joy and beauty of our world, of Nature as our constant friend and companion, and of the love of Nature that is the predominant mote in the Japanese character. 2 cassettes.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These four masterful abridgments, based on the classic work that helped bring Zen Buddhism to America, are read ably by Christopher Reed. The Rinzai sect of Zen seeks illumination through the tea ritual, samurai swordsmanship, and reverence for nature. It shuns philosophy, ego, and dualism. Through "unstopped" action and a state of "no mind," it embraces anti-intellectualism and relies on the unconscious to propel its adherents toward concrete action unfettered by abstractions or conceptualizations. Author Suzuki uses a series of fascinating stories of Zen masters to enlighten the listener, but it would take either a lifetime of study or a moment of Zen illumination for a full understanding of the content of even one of the four essays included in this suberb audio book set. Recommended for philosophy collections.-Mark Pumphrey, Polk Cty. P.L., Columbus, N.C.
