  1. The Beat primer for understanding Zen

    Posted by Ann Tucker on 20th Feb 2015

    I've loved this book since I first attended Zen Mountain Monastery in early 2002. I ordered this copy in order to share the wisdom with friends who ask about Zen practice. The discussion of following the precepts is especially wonderful.
