From the Back Cover:

“Watermelons and Zen students
grow pretty muchthe same way.
Long periods of sitting ‘till they ripen and grow
all juicy inside, but
when you knock them on the head
to see if they’re ready –
sounds like nothing’s going on.”
PETER LEVITT, 'One Hundred Butterflies'

Welcom the wisdom, inspiration, and humour of Zen into every day of the year with this handy collection of daily readings. The memorable sayings, teaching stories, poems, and koans in '365 Zen' offer an aid to meditation for Zen enthusiasts – and moments of reflection for the curious newcomer.
