This guide to Zen Buddhism helps explain classic Zen koans in a unique and fascinating manner. For Westerners, Zen Buddhism is shrouded in the mysterious. Attempts at explanation are lost to double meanings and unanswerable questions. This fascinating book uses dot-to-dot simplicity to unravel this Zen ambiguity. The author presents a series of 79 visual koans in the form of dot-to-dots which help to translate Eastern thought into Western understanding. Each illustration is accompanied by a concise phrase from Buddhist teachings along with a brief interpretation. There is also an on-going sequence of relaxation instructions drawn from Buddhist psychology. Each set fosters a unique interaction between mind and spirit, which will help lead the reader from confusion to enlightenment.
