Maezumi Roshi was known to tell his students not to go searching for Zen, but instead to develop an appreciation for their own lives as their greatest teacher. This major collection of his teachings consists of short, inspiring readings that illuminate Zen philosophy and practice through simple, eloquent language.

This book conveys Maezumi Roshi's unique spirit and teaching style, as well as his timeless insights into the practice of Zen. Never satisfied with merely conveying ideas, his teisho - the Zen talks he gave weekly and during retreats, evoked personal questions from his students. Maezumi Roshi insisted that his students address these questions in their own lives. As he often said, "Be intimate with your life."

"A brilliant, simple, infinitely subtle appreciation of this precious life." Peter Mathiessen.

"With a loving heart, Maezumi Roshi carried these teachings in his two hands across the ocean to offer to the West. Now you hold them in your hands, the subtle, profound, enigmatic Zen that awakens trust in your own true nature. Enjoy." Jack Kornfield.
