Synopsis:

Zen seems to revel in mystification, but does the hype live up to close scrutiny? This introduction to Zen explains the principles, practices and history of Zen and points the way to heightened consciousness and spiritual fulfilment. It traces the history of Zen through India, China, Korea and finally its home in Japan through the charismatic, historical characters that developed its traditions. Seeking to explore the Zen principles of emptiness, illusion and Buddha nature, the book takes readers through how they can experience a transcendental state of enlightenment by following the practices of zazen and shikantaza. It instructs readers in incorporating Zen into their lives, through painting, poetry, ikebana and the ritual of the tea ceremony, and takes the reader on a path to innner peace.
