5.0 out of 5 stars priceless..., 15 April 2010
This review is from: Zen Doctrine of No Mind (Paperback)
i practice lay very informal zen. attend a soto dojo close to my place but would sit with any other people if it was closer. i like to think of myself as just a person that sits and will not define my whole personality around zen. alll things in moderation, moderation included. it is a part of what i am not the whole of the law. this suzuki here manages to practice and understand and share zen buddhism on that level, i feel. you feel like he is your partner in the path as opposed to a master figure. that is rare. purists seek a legitimate master that can point you to the truth with a finger snap - mostly because they lack the confidence to trust anything that comes out their own spontaneous understanding. or because then you have official validation of buddhahood. not my thing. and you will not find it here, that's true. this is a very honest and accurate philosophical book on a religious subject that in the end you need to practice on your own, with or without others. don't be attached to form, it is a great great book on the lay practicioner's perspective. cheers.
