Synopses & Reviews
Abbot and founder of the Zen Center of Los Angeles, the Venerable Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi Roshi (1931-1995) was one of the most influential modern Zen masters. Devoted to establishing Zen Buddhism as a vital spiritual practice in the West, he inspired thousands of students, diligently training a new generation of teachers, including Bernard Tetsugen Glassman, Joko Beck, Dennis Genpo Merzel (author of 24/7 Dharma), and John Daido Loori.
Based on dharma talks given by Maezumi Roshi in 1987, Teaching of the Great Mountain presents his teachings in the imitable style of "live words". The first collection of talks given by Maezumi Roshi, Teaching of the Great Mountain includes: The Echoless Valley (based on three talks given on the Sutra of the Seven Wise Sisters), The Koan Mu, Kanzeon Bodhisattva (also known as Kwan Yin), and the Zen Art of Just "Sitting".
