Zen art possess a unique power to fuse aesthetic appreciation, personal intuition, and knowledge of life into one creative event. The work of Zen painters like Niten, Liang Kai, and Toba, and of haiku poets like Basho, Buson, and Isssa reflects the wholeness, spontaneity, and humanity of this vision. Zen Art for Meditation is a treasure, guiding its readers toward the silence and mind-expanding emptiness of Zen meditation through its collection of paintings and poems. Commentary by the authors complements the fullness these paintings represent -- the fullness not only of the beautiful pictorial space but also of the enlightened mind.
