Living Zen (Paperback)

Living Zen is that rare achievement, both a survey of the rich history of Zen Buddhism and a guide to the practice of this most demanding and effortless art of being.

Linssen, a distinguished Belgian scholar, offers a sage corrective to the idea that the Zen way is available only to those prepared to sit life out under the Bhodi-Tree.

Gently but insistently, he undermines this typically Western view, inviting and enabling us, as Christmas Humphreys puts it in his preface, to take the leap from thought to No-thought, from the ultimate duality of Illusion / Reality to a burst of laughter and a cup of tea.
