A beginner's guide to the basic principles and methods for the practice of Zen, as taught by the great Zen masters now translated into simple language all will understand. Learning to love yourself is the beginning of learning to love others. As long as we see ourselves as separate from all that is, the more we prevent ourselves from bringing love to those around us. Mindful meditation brings us closer to the realization of this loving Self - and to do this we practice Zen. The practice of Zen is a method to quiet the busy mind and to learn to recognize we are part of everything in the Universe, thus our selfless intent and compassion are a first step in the journey on the road to love. Simplifying what is often thought of as the complex regimen of Zen, this book is an easy to follow guide that allows the lay reader to understand and implement the principles of Zen in one's everyday life. This book covers: Basic Philosophy of Zen - Posture - Right Breathing - Insight Meditation - Regulating Breath - Regulating The Mind - Natural Breathing - Sustained Meditation - State of Purity - Zen Buddhism Glossary of Terms - Illustrations of Recommended Postures - Zen Meditation Types Explained -- "This indispensable guide gives the beginner in Zen meditation a solid foundation together with the loving philosophy that there is no distinction between Self and Other, that the path to love can be realized by anyone." - Amazon
