Shelves: spirituality
The author was an abbot of an American Buddhist Monastery. Probably best appreciated by those with some experience of Zen meditation. ( Although there is one chapt on beginning zazen.) Has lots of zen stories and koans.

One quote: "You begin to see that the pain, anger, fear and greed is what makes the illusion of self exist."

And

". . what you do and what happpens to you are the same thing."
