What Is Zen is the quintessential beginner's guide to achieving enlightenment. In simple, often poetic language, the author offers a general introduction to the concepts and philosophy of Zen Buddhism. He describes what it is, how it began and evolved, and how its emphasis on simplicity and self-effacement have helped shape an aesthetic found throughout Japanese culture. D.T. Suzuki lived to the age of 95 and was Japan's foremost authority on Zen Buddhism. What Is Zen is the first in a series of programs taken from Suzuki's Zen and Japanese Culture.

    " Completely shifted my views and values...about everything. Especially how I approach projects that are time consuming or repetitive, and ones that aren't.

    Very densely written but perhaps one of the most insightful short books I've ever read. "

    " Decisamente un ottimo libello per chi è interessato alla filosofia orientale. Irrinunciabile per chi si vuole avvicinare veramente alle arti marziali. "
