The Hidden Lamp sheds new light on Buddhist Women In "The Hidden Lamp", Zenshin Florence Caplow and Reigetsu Susan Moon have compiled 100 most moving stories. Before recently, women in Buddhism have been too often thrown on the back burner, although they can be incredible "sages and masters". Stories in this compilation relate to themes like "Being Human" and "Words in the Midst of Wordlessness." One of the most outstanding stories related to a Zen saying that "not knowing is the deepest intimacy," which is a truth that can be hard to come to terms with. Each story is followed by an enlightening personal response and a final meditation. In no way is the reader expected to be passive in this experience! The editors of this book have been practicing the art of Zen for more than 60 years combined and in those years edited countless journals and books. This is arguably the most important work they have focused on and I recommend it for an Buddhist woman looking for that special women-wisdom.
