    • edited by
    • Thomas Cleary

    Zen Practice in Everyday Life

    • by

In this book, Dainin Katagiri points to the manifestation of enlightenment right here, right now, in our everyday routine. Genuineness of practice lies in "just living" our lives wholeheartedly.

  9. Toward a Philosophy of Zen Buddhism

    Toward a Philosophy of Zen Buddhism

    • by
    • Toshihiko Izutsu
    Zen experience defies all thinking and linguistic description and simply affirms what is evidently real: "The ordinary way—that precisely is the Way." After questioning the nature of reality, the Zen student discovers that what remains is what is. Although it seems that Zen would not lend itself to philosophical discussion, that all conceptualization would dissolve in light of this empiricism, in this volume, the author demonstrates that the… Read More
