SUMMARY: "There are many options for beginners, but few for experts." This is how the most popular of all American Zen books begins. Seldom has such a small handful of words imparted such a rich teaching as this famous opening line from Shunryu Suzuki`s classic. In one fell swoop, the simple sentence cuts through the ubiquitous tendency of students to get so close to Zen that they completely overlook what it is. An immediate lesson on the front page. And this is only the beginning. In the thirty years since its original publication, Zen Mind, Beginner`s Mind has become one of the great modern Zen classics. Suzuki Roshi presents the basics - from the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of non-duality - in a way that is not only extraordinarily clear, but also resonates with the joy of intuition from the first page to the last. It`s a book you can refer to over and over for inspiration to practice.
