About the Author
Stephan Schuhmacher studied Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology at Cologne University and Japanology and Sinology at the Free University of West Berlin. In 1970 he went to Japan where he first continued his studies at the Jesuite Sophia University, before leaving the academic world to dedicate himself entirely to Zen practice. He worked in publishing in Germany for many years and edited and co-authored a dictionary of Eastern Wisdom that was translated in 8 languages, in English as the Shambhala/Rider Encyclopedia of Eastern Philosophy and Religion.
Top Customer Reviews
People looking for a road map to enlightenment will be disappointed, but this book poses the same questions as many practitioners of Zen have meditated over for thousands of years. This can allow self discovery and the search for truth. Read with an open mind :-)
