"These two books, bound in one volume, are especialy written for those altogether new to the study of Zen. The first book starts the beginner, the second gives him the next steps. These books are written by the greatest Zen master of our time. In his long life of 95 years (1870-1966) Dr. Suzuki was universally considered the greatest authority in the world on Zen Buddhism and Buddhist philosophy. He was also the pioneer teacher of the subject outside of Japan. Dr. Suzuki first came to America in 1897 and lived here until 1909, writing and translating. During the next forty years in Japan he wrote almost as often in English as in Japanese. He came back to America in 1949 and spent much of his time here until he finally returned to Japan at the age of 94"--Publisher's description, p. [2] of dust jacket.

"Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki is considered a key figure in the introduction of Buddhism to the non-Asian world. Many in the West encountered Buddhism for the very first time through his writings and teaching, and for nearly a century his work and legacy havecontributed to the ongoing religious and cultural interchange between Japan and the rest of the world, particularly the United States and Europe. As an early and influential representative of Zen Buddhism outside of Japan, Suzuki shaped the global conversation about the nature of religious practice for much of the twentieth century. This is the first of a multivolume series gathering the full range of Suzuki's writings. Volume 1 (Zen) presents a collection of Suzuki's classic essays as well as lesser-known but equally influential articles on Zen Buddhist thought and practice. Chinese and Japanese characters, which were originally removed from most post-World War II editions of Suzuki's essays, have been reinstated, and the romanization of Buddhist names and technical terms has been updated uniformly throughout the volume. This collection also contains an in-depth introduction to Suzuki's approach to Zen that places his influence in the context of modern developments in religious thought, practice, and scholarship, making this a useful edition for contemporary scholars and students of Buddhism"--Provided by publisher.

Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki was a key figure in the introduction of Buddhism to the non-Asian world. Many outside of Japan encountered Buddhism for the first time through his writings and teaching, and for nearly a century his work and legacy have contributed to the ongoing religious and cultural interchange between Japan and the rest of the world, particularly the United States and Europe. Selected Works of D. T. Suzuki gathers the full range of Suzuki’s writings—both classic essays and lesser-known but equally significant articles. This first volume in the series presents a collection of Suzuki’s writings on Zen Buddhist thought and practice. In an effort to ensure the continued relevance of Zen, Suzuki drew on his years of study and practice, placing the tradition into conversation with key trends in nineteenth- and twentieth-century thought. Richard M. Jaffe’s in-depth introduction situates Suzuki’s approach to Zen in the context of modern developments in religious thought, practice, and scholarship. The romanization of Buddhist names and technical terms has been updated, and Chinese and Japanese characters, which were removed from many post–World War II editions of Suzuki’s work, have been reinstated. This will be a valuable edition of Suzuki’s writings for contemporary scholars and students of Buddhism.

Many outside Japan encountered Buddhism for the first time through his writings and teaching, and for nearly a century his work and legacy have contributed to the ongoing religious and cultural interchange between Japan and the rest of the world, particularly the United States and Europe. This third volume of Selected Works of D. T. Suzuki brings together a diverse collection of Suzuki’s letters, essays, and lectures about non-Buddhist religions and his thoughts on their relation to Buddhism, as well as his reflections on the nature of religion itself. Some of these writings have been translated into English for the first time in this volume. As a long-term resident of the United States, a world traveler, and a voracious consumer of information about all forms of religion, Suzuki was one of the foremost Japanese mediators of Eastern and Western religious cultures for nearly seven decades. An introduction by Jeff Wilson and Tomoe Moriya analyzes Suzuki’s frequent encounters with texts and practitioners of many religions, considers how events in Suzuki’s lifetime affected his interpretations of Christianity, Shinto, and other traditions, and demonstrates that his legacy as a scholar extends well beyond Buddhism.

If you want to discover Buddhism in a simple and effective Way, then keep reading! Buddhism has been catching the attention and interest of a lot of people lately. In a world where everything goes fast and is constantly evolving, this ancient philosophy can help to slow down and live a more present and fulfilling life. However, there is a problem: Buddhism seems extremely complicated from the outside. Those who have never studied it think that it is impossible for the average Joe to make his way through all the rules and laws of this philosophy. Truth be told, Buddhism is not as complicated as contemporary Gurus pretend it to be. Due to the powerful teachings shared by the Buddha, Buddhism has been purposely passed on as a complex and difficult philosophy, while in reality, it could not be further from the truth. In fact, Buddhism is the only religion that does not have a defined set of rules that the practitioners must follow. On the contrary, it provides people with moral standards and ethical etiquette, that the single individual can interpret and use as he pleases. Making Buddhism as simple as possible is the aim of this book. Here is what you will discover: The big difference between Buddhism and all other religions and how it can be crucial for your personal development The secret healthy lifestyle of monks and how you can apply it in your own life The teachings of the most important Buddhist personality of the previous century - hint: it is not the Dalai Lama The secret foods recommended by the Buddha himself for a longer and happier life The hidden meditation techniques that can help you move toward a more present life; Much more... To get the most out of this book and out of Buddhism you are not required to adhere to a beliefs system. This makes Buddhism suitable for Atheists and those who already practice another religion as well. The beauty of the teachings of the Buddha is exactly this: they are a message for everyone and with this book, we wanted to share it as clearly as possible.

Knowledge of Zen Buddhism in the West is largely due to the work of D.T. Suzuki. Dr Suzuki reached his Zen enlightenment at the age of 27 and for the next 65 years he wrote widely about Buddhism and taught at universities in Europe and the US. He became the leading authority on Buddhism of the twentieth century and Essays in Zen Buddhism was the first book to fully introduce Zen in the West. In Essays in Zen Buddhism Dr Suzuki outlines the origins of Zen as a unique Chinese interpretation of the Doctrine of Enlightenment and the aim of the specifically Zen tradition was to attain Satori ('Sudden Enlightenment'). He describes how Satori can be achieved and the methods that can bring it about, but always stressed that Zen had to be a way of life that could cope with the demands and frustrations of daily life. The clarity of Dr Suzuki's writing helps the reader to an understanding of Zen, in giving the reader the ability to understand Zen rather than dictating what Zen is. In this collection of his most important essays Dr Suzuki explores the history of Buddhism, the daily life of a Zen monk and the path to enlightenment. Zen is not a religion, it is a way of perceiving, acting and being and these essays are the classic introduction to it, providing a foundation for living a fulfilled life. Essays on Zen Buddhism is not only an ideal introduction to the study of Zen but also a guide to discovering inner tranquility for anyone seeking a deeper meaning to their life. Zen is a unique school of spiritual development. Zen is not a religion, it is a way of acting and being and these essays provide a foundation for living a fulfilled life for anyone seeking spirituality in their lives.

He explains how Satori can be attained, and the methods that are needed to bring it about.In this collection of his most important essays he explores the history of Buddhism, the daily life of a Zen monk and the path to enlightenment. Essays on Zen Buddhism is a meditation on the meaning of existence as well as a critical account of Buddhism.

So there you have it; three tragic stories, two ending in death, all three of an exitential mode. What does it all mean? Is one's life guided by some supernatural force? Or is it the individual's Karma which is the driving force of our actions? According to karma theory every action has a consequence which will come to fruition in either this or a future life; thus morally good acts will have positive consequences, whereas bad acts will produce negative results.
