by John Daido Loori
Considered the most comprehensive book available on the Precepts, the moral and ethical teachings of Zen Buddhism. In it, Daido Roshi provides a modern interpretation of these precepts, and demonstrates how they can be used to navigate the dilemmas of our lives.
Paperback (237 pages) or CD Audiobook (7 hours, 34 minutes) read by Kohl Seiho Sudduth.
Also available as a downloadable mp3 audiobook.
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.
