Zen Philosohpy, Zen Practice presents the two dynamic aspects of Zen- its philosophy and its way of life. Providing a sound foundation for understanding, Dr. Thein-An traces the history of Zen within the general context of Buddhist thought, then focuses on the essential union of theory and practice, sitting and action, wisdom and compassion. For the beginning student, Zen Philosohpy, Zen Practice offers a concise and thorough grounding in Zen theory and technique. For the advanced student, its simplicity and clarity of style removes the mystery surrounding many interpretations of Zen and deepens understanding of how to apply Zen practice in daily life. Each of the fourteen chapters fully describes a specific meditation practice, ranging from relatively simple to more complex techniques, as taught by the various traditions of Zen Buddhism.
