Il punto fondamentale su cui Katagiri insiste è quello della manifestazione dell'illuminazione proprio qui, ora, nella nostra routine quotidiana. La pratica zen della meditazione seduta (zazen) non è dunque un mezzo in vista di un fine, ma è l'attività dell'illuminazione stessa. In ogni pagina Katagiri ripete energicamente il suo messaggio: "Il Buddha è la tua vita quotidi ...more

Ein schweres Buch, aber mit seltsamer Wirkung, denn nach dem Lesen scheinbar sich wiederholender und im mahnenden Ton manchmal unerquicklichen Abschnitten, bleibt eine tiefere Einsicht in das Verständnis des Lebens – und das kann man wahrlich nicht jedem Buch nachsagen.

"Il significato principale della vacuità" (Dainin Katagiri)

Very good information, but sometimes difficult to understand. The book is based on lectures, not a concerted effort to sit down and write. It's also a book that one should study, not necessarily read from beginning to end to arrive at a conclusion. The content is heavy at times, and if one has little experience or practice in the Zen Buddhist tradition, one can become lost pretty quickly. This is not a beginner's Zen text by any means.

Short, but dense. There's a lot to unpack in this book.

A dense but deeply humane, humble and challenging book. A whole different beast from the many new age self-help Zen manuals out there.

Stunning book on the essence of Zen; of interest to anyone (with half a brain) interested in aesthetics.
Sterling HolyWhiteMountain
Incredible book on Zen, not to mention an essential link between the spiritual and the aesthetic.
