I welcome with great pleasure Robert Aitken Roshi's introduction to Zen practice, Taking the Path of Zen. I feel this will be a valuable source of information and inspiration both for those who have a passing interest in the subject and those who have determined to set out on the path of Zen themselves.
As an American who has trained in Zen practice for many years Aitken Roshi has a special understanding of the problems and questions which plague Western students of Zen. His book will thus be a godsend for people who have sought an introduction to Zen in their own language, free of the foreignisms that cultural differences can produce.
It is my sincere wish that this work will gain the wide readership it so deserves.(Yamada Koun Roshi)

A good choice for an introduction to Zen. It maybe a little dry for some, but it is a very sound and useful text. Later in your practice, you will discover its value.Published 17 months ago by Joe
