"If you don't laugh at all, you've missed the point. If you only laugh, you've missed your chance for illumination." --Robert Anton Wilson, author of Cosmic Trigger

It is totally 70s, illustrations and all. If you were a hippy or flower child back in the day, it will bring back smiling memories. If you weren't, but want a sense of what is was all about, this book will give you a hint.
Short, easy to read.
I even read some of these short selections to my kids...
Bottom line: I strongly recommend it!
Philosopher Wittgenstein said that a good book of religion could be written, composed of jokes.
This is the religion. This is the book.
Camden wrote two other Zen books, one of which, "Riding Buddha's Bicycle" a much more autobiographical book, reamins unpublished. I've read them all and "Zen Without Zen Masters" was his crowning work. In my opinion it is the best book on Zen ever written.
He was a brilliant, gentle man who lived a life of wisdom in this "Age of Fools." Camden Beneres was an iconoclast, a Discordian and a man who never took himself too seriously. He was much loved by those privileged to know him -- in Japan he would have been revered as a "Living Treasure," a great sensei with many students.
Camden moved on to the next plane in the year 2000; wherever he is today, his spirit is surely smiling and full of laughter. Thankfully, he left us this book so that we can share his insights into life and enlightened wisdom.
