A Marvellous introduction to Zen Buddhism,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Buddhism is Not What You Think: Finding Freedom Beyond Beliefs (Paperback)
The Wisdom of InsecurityMy first foray into Zen for many years and I can't recommend this book enough. Steve Hagen makes a great deal of sense out of what can be a mystifying concept for a society founded on the idea of ego. Written with a real sense of 'commonsense' and a deep understanding of the subject but a renowned practitioner its very easy to grasp. I find Hagen and Alan Watts to be clear lights in a sometimes muddy landscape regarding Zen. I felt truly uplifted by reading this book and hungry for more experiences of 'now'.
