Zen is a form of Buddhism with origins in the teachings of the Buddha. It has its own literature, style of teaching and methods of practice. Today, Zen is firmly established in the West, where new forms of Zen practice and institutions are developing. Zen Buddhism emphasizes direct realization of the truth; avoids indulgence in abstract philosophical speculation; offers a practical path to finding the truth of our own nature; and stresses meditation as a means for living in awareness and appreciation of each moment of our lives. This fascinating book will give you practical tools for your journey to awareness, wisdom and enlightenment. Book jacket.
