The Elements of Zen

Front Cover
Element, 1992 - Zen Buddhism - 136 pages
The Zen way to self-knowledge is a search beyond the fetters of a logical mind toward an understanding of our own true selves. Through meditation techniques and the study of koans--startling paradoxes which cannot be solved by rational thought--a Zen student can achieve calmness, clarity, and concentration which ultimately leads to enlightenment.
