Drawing on the words of ancient masters and contemporary teachers, this issue of the Mountain Record takes up the theme of "Zazen," the seated meditation practice at the heart of Zen. Rather than looking at meditation broadly, we narrowed the focus, hoping that by tightening our scope, we might offer more depth. We explore what can we learn from the form of zazen, and what the practice teaches us about how to live wise and generous lives. Featured are John Daido Loori, Roshi; Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Sensei; and Konrad Ryushin Marchaj, Sensei. Includes writings by Jody Hojin Kimmel, Osho; Charlotte Joko Beck; Andrew Olendzki; Toni Packer; and Jan Chozen Bays, Roshi.
