Zen Essence

The Science of Freedom


By Thomas Cleary. 6" x 9", 116 pages, paperback. Drawn from the records of the great Chinese Zen masters of the Tang and Song dynasties, this collection represents the most open and direct forms of instruction in the entire Zen canon. What emerges is a picture of Zen, not as a religion or philosophy, but as a practical science of freedom. The translator provides a detailed afterword describing the historical and cultural background of the development of Chinese Zen.  Suggested Retail Price: $ 18.95
