Short is Probably Good
on February 21, 2012
This is an extremely short book. There's probably more content on the author's biography than on actual meditation.
But it captures the simple essence of Zen meditation that most meditation books greatly exaggerate -- probably to fill pages to allay the reader's dismay that there's nothing more to learn.
Zen meditation is simple. That's the difficulty of it. Practice is the core of Zen, not words written about it to enchant the mind.
Good read for the few minutes it lasts. That's Zen too. Things come and go, sometimes very quickly.
