Overview

Even though we know that words cannot convey the essence of experience, we continue to use them as if they could. This is as natural for human beings as baying at the moon is natural for wolves. But, we must not forget that the wolf?s baying is not astronomy; it is only baying at the moon. Similarly, this book is NOT ZEN; it is only talk about Zen. If you are not at all familiar with Zen but are interested in learning more, you have found the right book. If you are very familiar with Zen, you may enjoy this book as a reaffirmation of what you already know.

About the Author
Raymond Reed Hardy is an Associate Professor of Psychology at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. He first became interested in various meditation practices in 1969 after seeing a TV news broadcast of a Buddhist monk self-immolating on the stairs of the capitol building in Saigon, South Viet Nam.
How any human being could have done this became a nagging question that gradually resolved into an abiding interest in Buddhism and its related transcendental meditation practices.

Hardy has been practicing daily zazen since 1978, when he offered his first �Meditation and Consciousness� course.
