Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971) was a direct spiritual descendant of the renowned 13th-century Zen master Dogen, and his hugely influential Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind ranks with the great classics of Zen literature. Suzuki's clear, coherent translation of ancient beliefs and principles miraculously leaves all the subtleties of Zen intact, while adapting the language to modern sensibilities. As he reveals the actual practice of Zen as a discipline for daily life, the listener begins to understand what Zen is really about. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a book I could probably re-read quiet a few times. "

    " Read slowly, like a poem, and read often, like a piece of your life. "

    " It's difficult to digest the contents of this kind of book. What I could pick up from my first reading was to empty my mind as much as possible. When I face something, I should see it as it is, without any pre-thoughts or my own opinions. This attitude will make me become wise and help to think clearly. Throw away my colored glasses. "

    " I'm not very good at zen (I think I'm a little too high energy and anxiety-filled) but I'm trying, and this is an interesting introduction. "
