by Taizan Maezumi Roshi
Pure Maezumi Roshi on one of his favorite topics-the nature of koans and their significance not as an academic curiosity but as our very lives. A rare sample of his teachings in print. This mini-book is a fusion of three dharma discourses linked in poetic form, capturing Roshi's depth of insight, humor, capacity to illuminate ancient teachings, his creative use of language and ability to shape words in a way that provides the reader with an endless source of inspiration. Skillfully edited by Anton Tenkei Coppens. With riveting photographs by John Daido Loori, Roshi.
Paperback, 91 pages.
