Awakening of Zen

Awakening of Zen Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of essays and lectures by D. T. Suzuki covers a wide range of topics, from Mahayana Buddhism generally to the Zen school in particular, to Japanese art and culture, to the relationship between Zen Buddhism and Western psychology. Suzuki, whose work has had a profound and lasting influence, communicates his insights clearly and energetically. Among the essays is Dr. Suzuki's renowned address to the London World Congress of Religion in 1936, "The Supreme Spiritual Ideal", in which he uses the comparison of his simple house in Japan with the massive buildings in London, making architecture a metaphor for cosmic reality brought down to earth. The clarity of his presentation makes The Awakening of Zen a delight for the novice and scholars alike.
