One Bird, One Stone by Sean Murphy

One Bird, One Stone

American Zen Stories

by Sean Murphy

Title Details

Abridged Edition


In a little over a century Zen Buddhism has taken firm root in the American consciousness, with an estimated one million active practitioners and hundreds of centers and zazen (sitting) groups throughout the United States.

One Bird, One Stone is a distinctly American take on the ancient tradition and practice of Zen Buddhism. Drawn from the archives of major Zen centers in America and interviews with some of the most seminal figures of American Zen, including Philip Kapleau, Bernie Glassman, and Walter Nowick, One Bird, One Stone presents notable encounters between teachers and students, the moments of insight and wisdom, the quotable quotes, and the humor of Zen as it has flowered in America over the last hundred-plus years.
