    In the forty years since its original publication, "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind" has become one of the great modern Zen classics, much beloved, much reread, and much recommended as the best first book to read on Zen. Suzuki Roshi presents the basics from the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of nondualityin a way that is not only remarkably clear, but that also resonates with the joy of insight from the first to the last page. It's a book to come back to time and time again as an inspiration to ... Show more

Strong and simple statements

by Steve B on Oct 30, 2011

I believe it is very hard to captivate over such a subject. S.Suzuki did it. I do not always get it but his statements makes often the point. Great achievement by the team to collect his talks and put it as proses. As a zen beginner I found it like a motivating speech. I found the chapters not well defined. It is a bit confusing. But again, it is not a book written by S.Suzuki but a collection of his speeches. So, some clarity is missing but great feelings. 4 stars.

Excellent book

by Rick W on Oct 6, 2011

This is a marvelous book which I've given to many friends over the years. Suzuki brought Zen practice to San Francisco in the 1960s, starting San Francisco Zen Center in the process. The book describes the attitude of "just sitting" -- and of seeing things anew.

by crowspeaks on Apr 3, 2007

If you could have only one book on Buddhadharma, this is the one. Whether you're a seasoned 'old salt' or a 'total beginner', I don't think you could find a sharper sword to cut down subject and object, or one that is more gently (or more firmly) applied. Anything by (or about) Shunryu Suzuki is worth a read, but this is the first... and it's an absolute gem. A book for those interested in the practice as opposed to the theory of the Dharma.
