I read this book, in all honesty, because I was doing a Spell-Out Challenge for a Group. I am trying to read more Buddhist literature to learn more about the spiritual connections David has and why they are important to him. However, I felt like this didn't teach me much of anything. I feel like it would be good for someone who is focusing on meditation, and not on understanding. Perhaps I can take some of these prayers with me into meditation going forward? Who knows.

Deep thoughts great for meditating

The writings in this book are easy to read, deep in spiritual belief for togetherness and great to meditate on. I read one or a few and then meditated on the writing and found peace and learned a little more about selflessness. I saved this book and will go back to it as a part of my practice. Highly recommended.

What is the sound of one windbag deflating?

This has nothing to do with zen. Hogwash, mumbo jumbo, detritus. I wasn't looking for much, but I was looking at least for something. You might as well just repeat "I think I can, I think I can" ad infinitum. Bam. You got yourself a zen prayer.

I've read this one at least three times through, sometimes just selected parts. I can't stress how much it has helped me when I feel stressed and down! When I have trouble sleeping, usually because my brain just won't shut up, I read a poem or five from this one, and I calm down. I love it so much!

This is not for everyone. It is personal in that it will speak to each reader differently. However, if you are at an open point in your personal journey to inner peace and are getting more curious about Zen Buddhism, then read these lovely prayers.

Not just for reparations

Nice collection and perfect for meditations. Simple stanzas that were easy to internalize while still having profound applications. Will be kept close for easy reference.

Quick prayers to aid in focusing

So many of these prayers revealed my own struggles and presented simple solutions to help improve, without judgement or ridiculous advice.

“Prayer for Embodiment I open myself to loving my body as the miracle of my own life and as the ground of my integrity and spiritual life   I am ready to delight in all of my bodily senses as a means of connecting to nature and humanity   I am ready to care for and nourish my body so it is vital and of benefit to all life   I am ready to rid myself of all shame and guilt that i have accumulated about my appearance and my body   I open myself to loving my body as the miracle of my own life and as the ground of my integrity and spiritual life” 0 likes
