This landmark collection brings depth and breadth to our knowledge and appreciation of the historic Zen teacher Nyogen Senzaki. Here is his complete, never-before-published commentary on the Gateless Gate, as well as other sparkingly clear essays, letters and Dharma talks, and luminous poetry and calligraphy.

In 1893, Zen master Soyen Shaku became the first Zen teacher ever to teach on American soil. Soyen Shaku had two great dsiciples, both of whom would carry on the mission of bringing Dharma to the West: D.T.Suzuki and Nyogen Senzaki. D.T.Suzuki popularized the Zen philosophy and culture, but it was Nyogen Senzaki who taught the nuts and bolts of living Zen in one's everyday life. In this book we can appreciate the full power and scope of Senzaki's peerless teaching and great-hearted practice of the Buddha's way.

"Fearless and free-thinking, Nyogen Senzaki was the first great Buddhist teacher to immerse himself fully and without reservation in American life. The teachings and poems in this volume are as fresh, direct, and timeless as when they were first spoken." Melvin McLeod.

"Belongs in the library of every English-language reader of Zen, not only for its historical importance, but because it provides the contemporary student with a clear vision of what the practice has been and what it can be. Senzaki's words go straight to the heart of the truth, without adornment or qualification.

"Zoketsu Norman Fischer.

Like the great Zen ancestors Bodhidharma and Hui Neng, Nyogen Senzaki has, in the fifty years since his death, become something of a Zen legend.The world needs the cool headed, compassionate, and incisive teachings of this true monk more today than ever." Roko Sherry Chayat.
