5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful--how to wake up and become aware, October 20, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Zen and the Art of Happiness (Paperback)
This is a simple but powerful book that will change the way you look at life. Zen and the Art of Happiness takes happiness and consciousness to a whole new level.

This book (and its shrewd insights) is profound.

As D.T. Suzuki, the Japanese scholar and leading spokesman of Zen in mid-twentieth century America, said of Zen, "It merely enables us to wake up and become aware. It does not teach, it points". Zen and the Art of Happiness gives you simple but profound keys that will help you change your life. If you read it with an open heart it will truly help you find happiness.

The $ecret is... a load. Mentioning it with Zen simply bothers me. What does Zen have to do with some false New Age fraud such as that? "Teach the reader how to change his or her approach to life for the better"? No.

Nothing....but there were Amazon reviewers in 2007 who compared Zen to the Secret so I addressed the fact that there was no similarity.

Appreciate reply and see that you were addressing there is indeed no similarity. Here's a better question -what specific insights/teachings does this Zen book offer that have made a concrete positive difference in life for you?
