    • Ashizawa Kazuko

    Basic Japanese through Comics

    • by
    • Ashizawa Kazuko
    What is "Basic Japanese"? This book presents some very basic words and phrases along with some that are not usually considered "basic" at all. In fact, some of the material in this book is not typically presented until the student is well into his or her study of the Japanese language—and even then, it can be confusing without a skilled explanation. The Mangajin method, however, makes even this… Read More

  8. The Five Houses of Zen

    The Five Houses of Zen

    For all its emphasis on the direct experience on insight without reliance on the products of the intellect, the Zen tradition has created a huge body of writings. Of this cast literature, the writings associated with the so-called Five Houses of Zen are widely considered to be preeminent. These Five Houses—which arose in China during the ninth and tenth centuries, often referred to as the Golden Age of Zen—were not… Read More

    The Heart of Zen

    Kensho is the transformative glimpse of the true nature of all things.
