Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki's The Training of the Zen Buddhist Monk invites you to step inside the mysterious world of the Zendo, where monks live their lives in simplicity. This is perhaps the best introduction to Zen and the life of the Zen monk. By means of a direct and succinct description of the training that a Zen Buddhist monk undergoes, Dr. Suzuki has given us the most precise picture possible of Zen in life. The forty-three illustrations give a unique value to the book. The artist, Zenchu Sato has depicted here the record of his own experiences in going through all the disciplinary measures pertaining to the life of Zen. As author, Dr. Suzuki said, "Zen ought to be studied not only in its theoretical aspects, as a unique product of the Oriental mind, but in its practical aspect as it is to be seen in the Zendo life. This is the chief motive for my writing this book."

Robert Buswell, a Buddhist scholar who spent five years as a Zen monk in Korea, draws on personal experience in this insightful account of day-to-day Zen monastic practice. In discussing the activities of the postulants, the meditation monks, the teachers and administrators, and the support monks of the monastery of Songgwang-sa, Buswell reveals a religious tradition that differs radically from the stereotype prevalent in the West. The author's treatment lucidly relates contemporary Zen practice to the historical development of the tradition and to Korean history more generally, and his portrayal of the life of modern Zen monks in Korea provides an innovative and provocative look at Zen from the inside.

Dr. Suzuki is generally regarded as the outstanding spokesman for Zen Buddhism in the West. A master stylist in the English language, he writes of Zen with the directness and concreteness that characterize Zen itself. As he describes the training of the monk, he is as the same time bringing this rigid mental discipline to life in a manner no conventional explanation could. Dr. Suzuki's book is enhanced by 43 drawings from another Zen monk, Zenchu Sato, depicting the latter's own experiences as a novice. This is a major work that must be read by any Westerner who is interested in understanding Eastern thought.

Alles außer Erleuchtung! So könnte man Brad Warners provokatives Zen-Buch umreißen. Hinterfrag' Autorität. Hinterfrag' die Gesellschaft. Hinterfrag' die Realität. Hinterfrag' dich selbst. Hinterfrag' deine Schlussfolgerungen, deine Urteile, deine Antworten. Und wenn du alles gründlich hinterfragt hast, wird dich die Wahrheit vielleicht spontan am Kopf treffen... Aber sie wird nicht das sein, was du erwartest. Ein Buch für eine neue Generation von Buddhisten!

The One Open Door follows the adventures of the author as he seeks to free himself from the sorrow and unhappiness we all endure as humans on this earth. He begins as a confused and desperate young man. As the story unfolds he discovers spiritual practice, he learns to look inward, and then, to his surprise and delight, he begins to see how suffering is caused. He spends some time struggling on his own to find his way, and as he does he begins to have real glimpses of happiness and self-love. Then the big moment comes when he meets the person who will become his teacher. She inspires him to give his life to spiritual practice; for a full year he vacillates between ecstasy and horror until, finally, in a moment of blind courage and inspiration, he casts himself upon the mercy of the monastery she founded and asks for help. Eighteen years of silent Zen training follow. Over time, as he stumbles through every sort of scrape and pitfall imaginable, his commitment deepens, he acquires the tools of awareness practice, he grows up, and eventually he finds the love and acceptance he is searching for. The story is full both of the teachings the author received and the profound, often strange, sometimes hilarious ways he received them. There is a way to end suffering. The One Open Door describes this way through the experience of one person. The book was written at the monastery with the hope that it might assist others to discover the practice of compassionate awareness that the author learned and that the Buddha taught so long ago.
