This is a really good introduction to Zen meditation. It is written in a straightforward way with clear instructions and explanation to help you to understand what Zen meditation is (and isn't!). I found that this book dispelled a lot of misconceptions that I had about the process and also guided me through the 'what to dos' and 'what to expects' in a very practical way. This is by far the most easily accessible and down to earth guide to Zen and meditation that I have read and I would highly recommend it to anyone, whether they are just curious about it or looking to start meditating themselves.

i have read ~25 books on buddhism and zen
i thought this would be a nice book for beginners
but really it helped me get unstuck in some things that were weighing my practice down
simple and deep
this book seemingly negates the dichotomy between beginner's and advanced material
highly recommended

I bought this book as I felt I needed more peace in my life. It is not enough to just buy it though you need to put some time aside to meditate on your own every day you can do this in a park or in your own room.

This book has one central theme - the only one it really needs - keep bringing your attention back to the present. That's it, but it's couched in a lot of useful ways and with many attendant analogies. Well worth a read for the 'intermediate' practitioner.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is probably the best and most accessible introduction to meditation I have read which, as other reviewers have noted, manages to be both astonishingly simple and astonishingly profound at the same time. I have 'dabbled' in meditation for many years, but this is finally the book that has inspired me to sit for 2 short sessions a day on a regular basis. So be warned - it might change you from reading about meditation to doing it... Listen too to his talks at Dharma Field if you have any doubts about this teacher's bona fides.
