An Introduction to Zen Buddhism by D. T. Suzuki.
Edited by Christmas Humphreys. Foreword by C. G. Jung.
‘The basic idea of Zen is to touch the inner workings of our being, and to do this in the most direct way possible.’
In this widely praised introduction, Dr D.T. Suzuki presents the nature, technique and practice of Zen with exceptional clarity, wisdom and frankness. A Japanese Zen master who was also a highly respected authority on Mahayana Buddhism and who regularly taught in the USA and Europe, Suzuki was uniquely qualified to explain Zen to an international readership.
Zen is described by the author as the keystone of Oriental culture. This book is essential reading for all Zen students and for everyone who wishes to understand the psychology of the Far East.
