He blends his broad academic knowledge with the ancient practice of Buddhism and Taoism to create a truly unique work of timeless value.

Format: Kindle Edition
Zen koans can be very difficult to understand with western intellect. This book uses language in a way that is easier to read, but still requires more than intellect to fully understand.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A great selection of Koans in clear english. Revelations that are immediately accessable and instructive allowing the reader to grasp the Koan concept and the thinking behind it through the experience of the Koan itself: A moment of revelation.
