    Great teaching for a home practitioner.

  2. Wonderful little set

    Posted by Ian on 20th Dec 2016

    I'll be going to a retreat soon so I decided to purchase this set, primarily as a refresher and to see if there was anything contained I did not know. While I did not learn anything new for the practice of zazen, I learned a lot about how ZMM allows students to enter formal training.
    If you are new to zen, these books are indispensable. I told a friend of mine I wished that I had found (or more accurately, purchased) these books years ago since they contain everything you need to know in one spot.
    If you are familiar with zen, I believe you'll find this little set to be a breath of fresh air.
