This book attempts to provide: the tools necessary to begin the study of the mind, and with the help of Zazen, see into one's own nature. Many people will tell you that it is just a matter of sitting without goals, but the truth is far from it. This so called 'sitting' is an entire journey of self-discovery, of an intimate, spiritual self-development. During which time you train your mind to focus better and unveil your life's purpose. Zen Buddhism invites you to transform yourself spiritually and live in harmony with the world and the people around you. While many other religions can say the same, Zen Buddhism always strives for the purification of the mind. It urges you to face yourself, to face everything you like and dislike about who you are and what you do. Buddhism also challenges you to change the fundamental precepts of the life you have been taught so far, regarding materialism, ambition, pride, greed and revenge. Rather, it pushes you towards a general goodness of being. Wisdom, empathy, charity, tolerance and discipline are encouraged to grow. The results of this spiritual cultivation are numerous. Most importantly, you will begin a journey that all humans strive for in this world: the attainment of a meaningful and joyful life, where you are focused and aware of every single moment.

Zen, from its foundation in China of the 6th Century A.D., has always been more than a religion. It is an intriguing system of principles and practices designed to give each individual the experience of eternity in a split second, the knowledge of divinity in every living thing. To create a book about Zen, however, is risky. It is one thing to describe the factual history of this exotic strain of Buddhism. It’s quite another thing to successfully convey the crazy wisdom of the Zen masters, their zany sense of humor, and their uncanny ability to pass on the experience of enlightenment to their students. The authors of Zen For Beginners have clearly overcome these considerable risks. The book uses an engaging mix of clear, informative writing and delightful illustrations to document the story of Zen from its impact on Chinese and Japanese culture to its influence on American writers such as Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and Gary Snyder. The paradoxical teaching stories and style of the Zen master are also shown as important keys to understanding Oriental art, literature, architecture, and attitudes towards life and death.
