Description
The study of Zen has undergone an enormous resurgence as people strive for more meaning in their lives. These three beautifully produced full-color volume introduce Zen principles and practices that can be put into use in our daily lives.Haiku celebrates this ancient form of poetry with selections from classic and contemporary masters, and is divided into sections commemorating the four seasons and the new year.Koans are old, Chinese-devised problems that are solved through experience rather than chance logic. Deceptively simple, this collection of riddles is offered in order of difficulty and accompanied by brief explanations.Sayings is a commemorative collection of stories, parables, and proverbs from the past that are remarkable in the timeliness of their wisdom and the beauty of their imagery.Each volume begins with a simple, inspiring introduction to the subject and concludes with a list of recommended readings. Illustrated with expertly chosen and stunning art, these books will delight anyone moved by the delicacy and perfection of Zen arts and philosophy.
