Dennis Genpo Merzel Roshi, one of the most highly regarded American Zen teachers, demystifies the experience of enlightenment, teaching that it is none other than the awakening to our true nature, which is ever present and inherent in all of us. Through the practice of meditation, one is able to turn the light of inquiry inward and discover this for oneself. Genpo Roshi lays out this journey of discovery–from the first tentative glimpses of Buddha Mind to the full flowering of realized life.
Always practical and down-to-earth, Genpo Roshi shows that following the Buddha Way does not require adherents to leave behind their ordinary lives. Instead it is a process of integration, learning to flow freely between the many dimensions of life so that existence becomes more meaningful and joyous, and so that believers are able to carry the wisdom and compassion they have realized into daily life.
