Unpaid Annotation
A dynamic presentation of the story of Zen, this book chronicles Zen's development from the original enlightenment of the Buddha to its expression in the 20th century. The Simpkins begin with the Indian roots of Zen and continue the journey through China, where Buddhism merged with Taoism to give birth to Zen as we know it today. The development of Zen in Japan and Korea is then chronicled, and the book ends with an exploration of Zen in the West. The Simpkins bring many beautiful legends to life anew, and through anecdotes, interviews, poetry, and art, they help readers truly understand that the spirit of Zen is alive in all of us.
