Praise for Robert Aitken
Taking the Path of Zen
“This is the most precise instruction I have ever read on the principles and practice of Zen. What is remarkable about it is that very little in it is not applicable to other disciples. This beautiful book should be read by all pilgrims whether or not they are taking the path of Zen.”
—Toinette Lippe, Parabola
 
The Dragon Who Never Sleeps
“One can imagine this becoming a classic text that is discovered with delight by students of Buddhism not only in the present moment but two hundred years from now.”
Turning Wheel
 
The Gateless Barrier
“Aitken Roshi poses these koans in a manner accessible to Westerners through his depiction of his personal struggles with them (as a student) and his approach to them as a teacher. His commentary allows the transformative power of this traditional loan collection to come alive for modern students.”
—Joko Beck, Everyday Zen
