From the Back Cover:

Kazuaki Nahashi is an artist, translator, and writer whose books include 'Moon in a Dewdrop: Writing of Zen Master Dogen' and 'Brush Mind'.

Tensho David Schneider is an ordained Zen priest and the author of 'Street Zen'.

"I am grateful…for the gift of this splendid collection. Through (these) pages, the mind of Zen- permeable and particular, timeless and new-born, many and one- happily wanders. An ox eating flowers, flowers eating an ox- here, taste for yourself"
JANE HIRSHFIELD, editor of 'Women in Praise of the Sacred'

"This is the kind of book that you can keep nearby, open at random, and be pleasantly surprised by over and over. The equal time and attention given to the growing body of significant teaching from contemporary masters and practitioners keep the collection fresh; with its firm grounding in the classic texts, it brings Zen alive to the present moment. Highly recommended"
LIBRARY JOURNAL

"A pithy compendium of subtle dharmic gists…A tool kit for survival in samsara. I bow to its poetry, wit, and wisdom"
ANNE WALDMAN, director, Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics, Naropa Institute

"'Essential Zen' stands as one of the happy paradoxes in which Zen abounds"
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE BOOK REVIEW
