Great Guide for Explaining Zen to Westerners This is a wonderful explanation of Zen. Clear and profound, especially in relation to, and comparison with, modern day science. I wonder what the author would have thought about the "God principle" as it relates to Zen. I studied Buddhism in college, and I wish this book would have been around then--it would have made my studies more relative and personal.
