Overview

Kensho: The Heart of Zen by Thomas Cleary

Kensho is the transformative glimpse of the true nature of all things. It is an experience so crucial in Zen practice that it is sometimes compared to finding an inexhaustible treasure because it reveals the potential that exists in each moment for pure awareness free from the projections of the ego. Among the selected Zen works are a number of important texts focusing on the profound subtleties of this essential Zen awakening and the methods used in its realization.
