Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind

zen-mind-beginners-mindZen Mind, Beginner’s Mind

by Shunryu Suzuki

A mental workout is often required when studying Buddhism, Taoism, and other easten philosphy. The teachings are so simple, they can be difficult to understand.

This collection of teachings is no different. But anything that requires the reader to think deeply about simple things is a good read. The book refers mostly to zazen, but basically covers all aspects of life through meditative practice.

The purpose of the teachings are to develop “beginner’s mind.”
