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 43 illustrations give a unique value to the book. The artist has depicted here the record of his own experiences in going through all the disciplinary measures pertaining to the life of Zen. As 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. " Includes 17 appendices.; Octavo (standard book size); 160 pages
