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. "

    " This is a great read. It is short and easy to understand. I love that it uses the something very straightforward, archery, to explain the idea of zen and what it feels like. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mag | 8/8/2010

    " A very interesting and enlightening little book on the essence of the spiritual experience in Zen Buddhism.

    " It seems to me that this little book needs to be dusted off every ten years. I've changed since the last time I read it, and my approach to its message and desire to re-know it is different too. Not for everyone, but for those on a journey it is a good guide. "
