Description: In the forty years since its original publication, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mindhas become one of the great modern Zen classics, much beloved, much reread, and much recommended as the best first book to read on Zen. Suzuki Roshi presents the basics-from the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of nonduality-in a way that is not only remarkably clear, but that also resonates with the joy of insight from the first to the last page. It's a book to come back to time and time again as an inspiration to practice and it is now available to a new generation of seekers in this fortieth anniversary edition, with a new afterword from David Chadwick.
