Through explorations of the three pillars of Zen--teaching, practice, and enlightenment--Roshi Philip Kapleau presents a comprehensive overview of the history and discipline of Zen Buddhism.  An established classic, this 35th anniversary edition features new illustrations and photographs, as well as a new afterword by Sensei Bodhin Kjolhede, who has succeeded Philip Kapleau as spiritual director of the Rochester Zen Center, one of the oldest and most influential Zen centers in the United States.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references.

About the Author

Roshi Philip Kapleau, founder of the Rochester Zen Center, has studied and taught Zen for more than 50 years, after first encountering Zen Buddhism as a reporter at the war crimes trials in Japan in 1946. While there he met D.T. Suzuki and in 1950 began to study Buddhist philosophy, completing over sixteen years of study and practice in both Japan and America. Roshi Kapleau lives in Rochester.

Phillip Kapleau's Three Pillars of Zen opened my eyes to a new way of looking at the world, myself, and my life. It helped answer many questions and created many others. I recommend it to anyone who wants to find out more about themselves.
