On Zen Practice: Body, Breath, and Mind
Wisdom Publications, Apr 1, 1999 - Literary Collections - 208 pages
This updated landmark volume makes available for the first time in decades the teachings that were formative to a whole generation of American Zen teachers and students. Conceived as an overarching primer on the practice of Zen, chapters in this volume address every aspect of practice: beginning practice, shikantaza, chanting, sesshin, working with Mu, and the nature of koans.
In the intervening years since the publication of the earlier edition, countless books have appeared on Zen. Few, if any, have approached the strengths of On Zen Practice as a reference or teaching tool, and the book retains a lively, immediate quality that will appeal to today's readers.

Review: On Zen Practice: Body, Breath, and MindUser Review - Steve - Goodreads
Hardcore. Everything you wanted to know about Zen, but were afraid to ask. More for the serious practitioner than the beginner (if you haven't read Shunryu Suzuki, I'd head there first). Read full review
