Format: Paperback
On the face of it, this seems to be a basic introduction to Zen Buddhism & its meditation practices. Like Zen itself this book unveils more layers the futher you delve into it and gives something to beginners & more experienced trainees alike.

This book isn't written by an academic but by the abbott of a working Buddhist monastery.

This is a wonderful little book for anyone interested in Zen practice. Written by the abbot of a Zen temple teaching here in the UK - it introduces the practice of zazen or 'silent illumination' to anyone in a simple and effective manner.

As a Buddhist teacher of meditation in prisons for over ten years I think this book is simply one of the best introductions to meditation I have yet read. I highly recommend it to beginners and experienced meditators.

Over the years, there have been many excellent books written on Buddhist practice and theory generally, and on Zen in particular. So many indeed that it's impossible to say which is 'the best'. But this gem comes close. As another reviewer rightly said, it's simple on one level, but on repeated readings opens up and goes deep, especially if you yourself are a daily meditator: His writing hits your own experiential spot brilliantly.
Daishin Morgan is a superbly gifted writer. But not only that, he's a profoundly intelligent, economical, dryly witty and extremely 'human' speaker and teacher. (Check out his talks on Throstle Hole Abbey's homepage. They are wonderful).
My only regret is that I never went up to Throstle Hole to hear him talk in person while he was there. I know that he has taken a long but temporary leave from the abbey and has expressed his intention to return. Let's hope he does. But if he doesn't, let's hope he continues teaching and writing in some capacity. Great teachers are rare and it would be a crying shame if we were all to be deprived of this brilliant yet modest one.

This book contains all you will need to enable you to begin and proceed with a Zen meditation practice if you are a beginner - it includes a lot of basic instruction that other books seem to leave out. But not just that, Its got the lot, everything you'll need - so don't be misled by the SIMPLE. This is a COMPREHENSIVE guide for beginners and experienced practicioners alike. I have given copies to friends with an interest in taking up a meditation practice who have found it easy to read and the directions simple to follow.
Along with Steve Hagen's Buddhism Plain and Simple, I would rate this as a must for any aspiring practitioner.

This is an excellent introduction to the practice of Serene Reflection Meditation as practised within the Soto Zen Tradition. It explores the direct physical and mental aspects of zazen and looks at the broader context of practice.

This volume is by Rev. Master Daishin Morgan, Abbot of Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey (in Northumberland, UK) and Dharma heir of the late Rev. Master Jiyu-Kennett, founder of the Order of Buddhist Contemplatives. Also by Rev. Master Daishin is Buddha Recognizes Buddha, a more advanced work looking at living within the ever-present reality of enlightenment.
