Overview

While searching through any bookstore, in any city, in any country throughout the
world, there is sure to be a shelf or two devoted to the art of Zen. The very idea
that Zen could be broken into words on a page, explaining the exact method on
how to obtain true enlightenment is almost absurd, and quite contradictory to the
very nature of the practice itself. To be without being, to know without knowing,
to understand without understanding are unusual concepts to put into thought,
much less into idea and then onto paper. So this is what I offer to you . . . Once
you pick this book up, and then put it down, regardless of the time in-between, I
hope that the contents awaken a thought inside of you . . . That one thought that you
may have known was always there, dormant , but burning . . . that you understand
why the ultimate treasure of the quest is not written in a book, or heard in a
lecture, or taught by a teacher, but rather inside you, and beyond you, within you,
and everywhere and anywhere in between. Stop searching. Stop asking. Stop
questioning. Be where you are and know that now is the end, and the beginning,
and be satisfi ed.

    Would read again

    A thrilling tale with ups and downs and an execpected plot twist near the end. 'Zen' kept my interest throughout and is appropriate for ages teen and up. The love interest is a little risque and should probably not be read by children. I cannot give this book a full 5 stars because of the subtle, yet time-piece-appropriate, racism. While it fit with the story the language was offensive enough to make me cringe and thus only recieve 4 stars. I have gotten 8 friends already to enjoy this book and I plan to re-read in the near future.
