This is one of the best books on Zen and Zen practice that I have read in years. Bussh uses a well-known Zen song/poem to elucidate the key features of Zen meditation, practice and life.It brings the famous Zen masters teaching alive while also showing how it is relevant to Zen practice in the 21st century.Tim Burkett, author of Nothing Holy About It and Zen in the Age of AnxietySinging and Dancing Are the Voice of the Law introduces us to one of the great works of Zen literature, The Song of Zazen. Zen teacher Bussh Lahn illuminates Hakuins enigmatic poem in plain language, unpacking it and applying it to contemporary life. His book offers a wealth of information on the context and content of this eighteenth-century work, clearly evoking its themes of abiding wisdom, meditation, compassionate self-regard, and our own everyday lifes potential to express deep spiritual truth.Short stanza by short stanza, this exceptionally readable and deeply engaging book shows how the poems teachings and invitations are as applicable now as they were when they were first written nearly three centuries ago. Lahn offers readers an intuitive and progressive path of exploration of their spiritual lives, regardless of their faith tradition.
