Samenvatting

Updated, revised, with a new cover, new trim size, and illustrations throughout, the national bestseller The Little Zen Companion, with 516,000 copies in print, is repackaged for a new generation of seekers as The Little Book of Zen. A perfect gift and book of discovery, its maverick spirit celebrates ideas drawn from Zen Buddhism that have tremendous currency today: mindfulness, meditation, compassion, paying attention to the here and now, and finding a deeper meaning in life.

While it seeks neither to define Zen nor answer its most famous koan (&;What is the sound of one hand clapping?&;), The Little Book of Zen points to a calming way of looking at the world. Each page features a quote, phrase, story, koan, haiku, or poem, interspersed with essays on the Buddha, Zen arts, significant masters, and more. The feeling is that of a meditation book with 2,500 years of wisdom&;from Lao-tzu to Lily Tomlin. It&;s a celebration of intuition: &;If a man wishes to be sure of the road he treads on, he must close his eyes and walk in the dark.&;&;St. John the Cross. Individuality: &;Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the men of old; seek what they sought.&;&;Basho. And self-discovery: &;We already have everything we need.&;&;Pema Chödrön.

New material is taken from contemporary spiritual leaders, writers, meditation teachers, and others with an emphasis on the practice of mindfulness&;on the heart, rather than the head. Pen and ink illustrations from the author bring an additional layer of feeling and beauty.
