5.0 out of 5 stars zen does carry a lot of baggage lately, 15 April 2010

This review is from: Zen Baggage (Paperback)
great book. i like bill porter's translations and commentaries a lot so i guess i was biased to start with. it does read great as a travel journal. very light but accurate on the historical bit. quite devoid of zen pedantics too. you do not need to have an ordinaton or some sort of degree on zenology by buddha himself to be walking the path. and that's what refreshing from bill. very southern of him (if you know what i mean). don't knock yourself out polishing tiles, people. keep it in balance and read this as a book for the sake of itself. no enlightenment here. sorry. and still....
