This review is from: The Zen Teaching of Huang Po on the Transmission of Mind (Paperback)
I have been reading serious Buddhist texts for about 18 months now. This is easily one of the best I have read so far. Please note that it has nothing to say about the trappings of the religion. Consequently, it might not suit those people who like, for instance, the rich visual symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism; but I would recommend it to anyone who prefers the more spartan Chinese and Japanese varieties of Buddhism that seem to concentrate on the core spiritual values. Once you have read this book, you will be mentally prepared for the profound but laconic style of Suzuki's "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind".
