His commentaries are based on workshops he gave as Abbot of the Zen Community of New York, and they contain within them the principles that became the foundation for the Greyston Mandala of community development organizations and the Zen Peacemaker Order.

Zen in the Art of Archery (Arkana), Herrigel, Eugen
7 Herrigel, Eugen Zen in the Art of Archery (Arkana)
Penguin Books, Limited (UK) 1994 0140190740 / 9780140190748 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. The path to achieving Zen (a balance between the body and the mind) is brilliantly explained by Professor Eugen Herrigel in this timeless account. This book is the result of the author's six year quest to learn archery in the hands of Japanese Zen masters. It is an honest account of one man's journey to complete abandonment of 'the self' and the Western principles that we use to define ourselves. Professor Herrigel imparts knowledge from his experiences and guides the reader through physical and spiritual lessons in a clear and insightful way. Mastering archery is not the key to achieving Zen, and this is not a practical guide to archery. It is more a guide to Zen principles and learning and perfect for practitioners and non-practitioners alike.

The Zen Teaching of Huang Po: On the Transmission of Mind, Hsiu, P'ei (Preface)
8 Hsiu, P'ei (Preface) The Zen Teaching of Huang Po: On the Transmission of Mind
Grove Press 1994 0802150926 / 9780802150929 Paperback Fine 
This complete translation of the original collection of sermons, dialogues, and anecdotes of Huang Po, the illustrious Chinese master of the Tang Dyna sty, allows the Western reader to gain an understanding of Zen from the ori ginal source, one of the key works in its teachings; it also offers deep an d often startling insights into the rich treasures of Eastern thought. Nowh ere is the use of paradox in Zen illustrated better than in the teaching of Huang Po, who shows how the experience of intuitive knowledge that reveals to a man what he is cannot be communicated by words. With the help of thes e paradoxes, beautifully and simply presented in this collection, Huang Po could set his disciples on the right path. It is in this fashion that the Z en master leads his listener into truth, often by a single phrase designed to destroy his particular demon of ignorance.

The Spirit of Zen, Watts, Alan
15 Watts, Alan The Spirit of Zen
Grove Press 1982 0394174186 / 9780394174181 Paperback Good 
Here is something quite unfamiliar to the West, something which will appeal strongly to all who are trying to find deeper reality in life than philoso phy and conventional religion can express. Historically, Zen is an aspect o f Buddhism, but in itself it is so vital and elusive that it escapes defini tion. To be understood it must be lived. As a way of life it is the highest achievement of the Chinese spirit and the inspiration of its greatest art. Through Zen, Chinese culture reinforms our own with new meaning and offers us altogether new possibilities in a world of change. Contents Include: Th e Origins of Zen The Secret of Zen The Technique of Zen Life in a Zen Commu nity Zen and the Civilization of the Far East

The Spirit of Zen: A Way of Life, Work, and Art in the Far East, Watts, Alan
16 Watts, Alan The Spirit of Zen: A Way of Life, Work, and Art in the Far East
Grove Press 1994 0802130569 / 9780802130563 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Alan Watts's The Spirit of Zen was one of the first books to introduce the basic foundation of Zen Buddhism to English-speaking audiences. This volume still stands as one of the most lucid and concise explanations of the origins and defining principles of Zen, from its beginnings in ancient India and its later transmission to China and Japan, to Watts's revealing portrait of life in a contemporary Japanese Zen monastery. In The Spirit of Zen, Watts describes, in plain language but without robbing the subject of its provocative subtlety, how one can prepare for a life of Zen. He explains the sacrifices and surrenders, the requisite self-control; the baffling set of spiritual exercises known as Koan, which take the form of verbal jigsaw puzzles; the importance of mental discipline; and the need to recognize the futility of mere intellectual haggling - all necessary steps along the road to Zen. Through text and illustrations, the author examines the tea ceremony, ink-drawing, landscaping, and swordsmanship, all Zen-infused aspects of Japanese life; they give an understanding not only of Zen, but of Eastern culture in general.
