Product Details

Praise

The Three Pillars of Zen is still, in my opinion, the best book in English that has been written on Zen Buddhism.” —Huston Smith, author of The Worlds’ Religions and Forgotten Truth

“The Three Pillars of Zen heralded the end of armchair Buddhism.  With this practical guide to Zen meditation, Roshi Kapleau ushered in the first wave of American zazen practitioners. It was extraordinarily inspiring. It still is.” —Helen Tworkov, founding editor of Tricycle: The Buddhist Review and author of Zen in America

“For over thirty years Roshi Kapleau’s Three Pillars of Zen has been the wellspring of Zen teachings for practitioners in the West, remaining as vital and fresh today as it was when it was originally published. It truly ranks among the timeless classics of Zen Buddhism.” —Roshi John Daido Loori, Abbot, Zen Mountain Monastery

“For anyone seriously interested in Zen—this book will be invaluable.” —The Times Literary Supplement (London)
