What Is Zen?: Plain Talk for a Beginner's Mind by Norman Fischer

What Is Zen?: Plain Talk for a Beginner's Mind

Video About This Audio Book

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 32 Min.


An accessible and enjoyable introduction to Zen Buddhist practice - in a listener-friendly question-and-answer format - by two highly regarded teacher-writers.

The question-and-answer format makes this introduction to Zen especially easy to understand - and also to use as a reference, as you can easily look up just the question you had in mind. The esteemed Zen teacher Norman Fischer and his old friend and teaching colleague Susan Moon (both of them in the lineage of Shunryu Suzuki, author of Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind) give this collaborative effort a playful tone: Susan asks a question on our behalf, Norman answers it, and then Sue challenges him. By the time you get through their conversations, you'll have a good basic education in Zen - not only the history, theory, and practice but also the contemporary issues, such as gender inequality, sexual ethics, and the tension between Asian traditions and the modern American reality.
