Product Details


"It strikes new ground by presenting Zen practice in a thoroughly Western milieu…Weighty matters are dealt with so entertainingly that it is hard to put the book down"–John Blofeld

"Taken either for itself or as a companion to Kapleau’s classic The Three Pillars of Zen, this is an excellent introduction."–Library Journal

"Kapleau goes into many areas of Zen little explored in Western writings, areas that both perplex and titillate Western students–. His comments and expositions are incisive, humorous, and well illustrated with personal anecdotes and amusing stories."–Re-Vision

"An important contribution to our understanding of Zen in the Western world, where it is now becoming a steadily growing spiritual force."–Lama Govinda, author of Foundations of Tibetan Mysticism and A Living Buddhism for the West
