Essays in Zen Buddhism
By Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers
$32.50 Paper Original
In this book the chief stress has been placed on the study of 'The Koan Exercise', which at present constitutes almost the alpha and omega of Zen discipline especially as it is practised in the Rinzai School of the Zen sect.
The Koan technique is full of pitfalls, but its development was inevitable and without it Zen might not have survived. In this volume the author has also included some Suiboku paintings by both Japanese and Chinese artists.
