Product description

Review

"This is the first book I am aware of that draws on the existing body of literature in English by modern Zen teachers to offer a solid reader's guide to the ABCs of Zen. A practitioner herself, Jean Smith manages to write about Zen simply and succinctly -- from the inside."
-- Norman Fischer, coabbot of San Francisco Zen Center

"This book is both a primer and an overview, offering the beginning student clear instructions for where, how, and with whom to practice, as well as, most importantly, why."
-- Sylvia Boorstein, author of Don't Just Do Something, Sit There

"Jean Smith covers the basics in this carefully crafted and knowledgeable introductory guide to Zen. Her long experience of practice illuminates this 'finger pointing toward the moon.'"
-- Sojun Mel Weitsman, abbot of Berkeley Zen Center

"In a kind and friendly manner, Jean Smith graciously invites us to visit the world of Zen and make ourselves at home in our own being."
-- Edward Espe Brown, Zen priest, author of Tomato Blessings and Radish Teachings

Synopsis

A comprehensive introduction to Zen Buddhism offers a readerfriendly look at the meditation practices, basic teachings, important texts, and history of Zen, accompanied by photographs of meditation positions, ceremonies, and annotated bibliography, glossary, and resource listing. Original.
