Daily Teachings from the Zen Masters
This eBook can be read in epub/mobi/pdf formats
Zen Wisdom takes the reader on a journey of gradual awakening, which echoes the traditional Zen story of 'The Ten Bulls'. Each section of this book corresponds to a step on the path to enlightenment, beginning with quotes from the 12th-century Chinese master Kuo-an Shih-yuan, followed by inspirational thoughts of the day from the great Zen masters.
The Zen journey is not a direct one, however, and readers will find themselves at different stages at different times. But the tale of 'The Ten Bulls' is a powerful metaphor, in which the bull represents the seeker's self, which he or she must find, master and eventually relinquish in the search for the essential Oneness of all things.
