You may well ask, what is Zen driving? The Japanese word zen literally means meditation, and meditation means being fully aware, fully in touch with your surroundings. When you are in a meditative state, you are in your natural self, your Buddha self - and you can do it while driving. The purpose of 'Zen driving' is to introduce you to your natural self, wich is what remains when you still your mind and ignore your chattering ego. When you do this, you gain confindence in your natural ability, and finally you are that ability. In this case, the ability is driving. 'Zen driving' can make each driving experience enjoyable, whether it`s a daily hour-long drive to work, or a ten-minute run to the local Safeway. The frustrations of other drivers cutting you off or causing you to sit through two red lights because they're too timid to make a left turn on yellow will no longeer your blood pressure explode. This book will teach you to look, simply observe without qualification, and then make your move.
