    Shunmyo Masuno's book and essential teachings

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to share this article with you. Masuno emphasizes the importance of practice in Zen: https://www.japantimes.co.jp/culture.../#.XLQ43fZuJPY

    (I'm not a student of Shunmyo Masuno, I never have been, and this is not an attempt to promote his new book).

    Gassho,

    He had with 'Zen' then finished me off with 'simple living'. Another one to the never ending list!

    Thanks for the link.

    Thank you for the link. The book is added to the growing list which, I assume, like
    a zen garden, can never be finished

    Thanks for posting this. Like Washin my list of to read books keeps getting longer.

    It looks like this is published under two titles. It looks like these are the same books - same number of pages - publication dates are 2 days apart.

    From what I can see, the Table of Contents is the same too. Strange.

    Also, congratulate me, I got back my signed contract with Wisdom Publications for my book on reading Dogen! I'm an author! (Tentative new title: "The Dance of Being." They changed it for some reason I must find out from my original "The Zen Master's Dance" which I still care for)

    Thank you Jack, this is now queued on the kindle. Congratulations Jundo, I'm really happy that you'll have the opportunity to reach an even wider audience, well deserved - we will all be wanting an autographed copy of course!

    Darn, I wish new books on Zen would get devastating reviews ... now like all of your lists mine has gotten longer.

    Congratulations Sensei! Of course your book will be placed at the top of my list, once it is published... no matter what title gets on the cover.
