Rei Ryu Philippe Coupey makes the Zen essence of the perennial teachings as clear as it can be to us here on Earth through his gift for distilling the teachings into American, and speaking to and about the American disposition without watering it down into New Age superficiality, something the spirit of our age desperately needs. "In the Belly of the Dragon" does what all scriptual commentary should do, but often doesn't: it clarifies. This book could easily, for someone stumbling along the Way, at the right time and place, become an essential text. --Dana Wilde
