In this treasury of Zen wisdom based on his talks, the abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, New York, explores the eight areas of study that are the focus for training in his community: meditation, study with the teacher, liturgy, art practice, body practice, the study of scriptures, work practice, and the moral and ethical teachings. John Daido Loori also covers such topics as koans, the martial arts, and illness and healing, and he makes intriguing observations about the spirit and requirements of Zen in America.


“One of the best examples of the vigor of the Zen tradition in the West.”—Vajradhatu Sun

“It’s good to see such a solid book emerging from the welter of literature on this subject, and from a Westerner who has undergone long years of equally solid practice.”—Middle Way

“The charm of this book lies in the refreshing rearrangement of the classical koans and in their practical expression as they relate directly to the life of each of us.”—Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi
