In today's uncertain times, millions across the globe are in search of spiritual relief from the wars and economic strife plaguing society. For those seekers, NO Zen, a collection of one hundred original quotations, may offer a glimmer of hope-by way of a hearty guffaw. By compiling this refreshingly irreverent assortment of "spiritually incorrect wisdom," Zen Psychoanalyst Stephen Slade Tien extends a challenge to his readers to laugh at themselves as well as their religious beliefs, rituals, and sayings in order to be truly enlightened. In doing so, readers just may find themselves on a higher path to enlightenment after all, a path that will provide them with a light-hearted glimpse into their own souls. Unlike other books on Zen, Eastern philosophy, and personal growth, NO Zen is 100% original, not merely a rehashing or new translation of time-worn and now-cliché spiritual wisdom. Rather, this little book is a slyly tongue-in-cheek guide to modern enlightenment.
