Review

"Perhaps the first Dharma book I ever read, "Zen Flesh, Zen Bones," remains a classic, a gem, a gift to us all." Dr. Daniel Goleman, author of "Emotional Intelligence""

"It has stayed with me for the last 30 years, a classic portraying Zen mind to our linear thinking." --Phil Jackson, Head Coach of the Chicago Bulls and author of Sacred Hoops

"This book was my introduction to Buddhism nearly thirty years ago. I am delighted to see this new edition of this wonderful classic." --Sylvia Boorstein, author of It's Easier Than You Think

"Perhaps the first Dharma book I ever read, Zen Flesh, Zen Bones, remains a classic, a gem, a gift to us all." --Dr. Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence

"This book has been a steadfast portal through which millions in the West have peered to catch at the very least a glimpse of Zen mind at play in all its thought-shattering dialogue, humor, joy, and wisdom." --Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Wherever You Go, There You Are --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

When Zen Flesh, Zen Bones was published in 1957 it became an instant sensation with an entire generation of readers who were just beginning to experiment with Zen. Over the years it has inspired leading American Zen teachers, students, and practitioners. Its popularity is as strong today as ever.

Zen Flesh, Zen Bones is a book that offers a collection of accessible, primary Zen sources so that readers can struggle over the meaning of Zen for themselves. It includes 101 Zen Stories, a collection of tales that recount actual experiences of Chinese and Japanese Zen teachers over a period of more than five centuries; The Gateless Gate, the famous thirteenth century collection of Zen koans; Ten Bulls, a twelfth century commentary on the stages of awareness leading to enlightenment; and Centering, a 4,000 year-old teaching from India that some consider to be the roots of Zen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
