About the Author

John Daido Loori (1931–2009) was one of the West's leading Zen masters. He was the founder and spiritual leader of the Mountains and Rivers Order and abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery. His work has been most noted for its unique adaptation of traditional Asian Buddhism into an American context, particularly with regard to the arts, the environment, social action, and the use of modern media as a vehicle of spiritual training and social change. Loori was an award-winning photographer and videographer. His art and wildlife photography formed the core of a unique teaching program that integrated art and wilderness training by cultivating a deep appreciation of the relationship of Zen to our natural environment. He was a dharma heir of the influential Japanese Zen master Taizan Maezumi Roshi and he authored many books.

I have read some of Loori's books and was very pleased with them. I was hoping this would explain the altar ritual in a more concrete way.

Bringing the Sacred to Life opens the imaginary door between ordinary life and the sacred. John Daido Loori speaks to the heart of the matter. This book inpired and challenged me. Not just for Zen students, Bringing the Sacred to Life breaks through duality for all readers, those who practice Buddhism and those who don't.

Format: Paperback
Small little book with a great deal of value. Beyond being a good read, as all of Daido Roshi's books, this book sits in my altar as a reference for the wonderful liturgies contains.
