A taste of Zen for the seeker and the curious alike, The Little Book of Zen collects Eastern and Western sayings, haiku, poetry, and inspiring quotations from ancient and modern thinkers. Interspersed are essays on important figures in the history of Zen as well as Zen practices like meditation. Its aim is not to dene Zen but rather to point to a fresh way of looking at the world: with mindfulness, clarity, and joy. Pen and ink illustrations from the author bring an additional layer of feeling and beauty. Many contemporary spiritual leaders and others quoted are Jews, including Abraham Joshua Heschel, Martin Buber, Leonard Cohen, Allen Ginsberg, Jack Korneld, Sylvia Boorstein, and Sharon Salzberg.
