Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D. T. Suzuki by D T Suzuki
Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D. T. Suzuki

no one special, November 30, 2009

I have been reading this book in part and wholly for almost ten years -- I have an older edition of it. Every time I read it again I understand something new. It is very meaty. Its greatest strength (it has many strengths) is that the author had direct experience of the system he wrote about. Although he was a scholar, he was also an enlightened man, so when he talked about enlightenment he was able to speak very clearly, with real authority.
I don't practice Zen per se, but another form of insight meditation that is almost identical, without the Chinese/Japanese cultural stuff. This book is one of the most important ones in my library.
