    Daniel Lessard Levin(Author)
The zen mind is the beginner's mind, which sees everything as if for the first time. It is in this zen mind that realization comes.

This is why the sayings in this book were written. They're not meant to teach, but rather to remind you of things you already know.

Daniel Levin has practiced meditation for more than 20 years, but his deepest experience came from hearing something he'd heard a thousand times before for the first time. In that moment, every perception changed and his life looked entirely new. It is his heartfelt desire that the sayings in this book awaken you. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

  • By M BAILEY on 13 August 2014

    Whilst there are some nice quotes and references to aspects of Zen thought, this book is presented along with dualistic religious thought and occasional references to God, which Zen is not really about. If I was new to Zen, this book could be misleading and certainly misses some of the real wisdom of Zen that is better explained in other books that quote directly from Zen and Taoist Masters as the two belief systems (if we must pigeon hole them) are very closely linked.

    A book that is full of wisdom, esay to get into and each time one reads from it there always seems to be an oppurtunity to gain isight into a spritual nugget of enlightenment. A very good and interesting publication.

    A book of short stories and anecdotes which explain the principles of Zen in a very relaxed and informative way. Some are simply a few sentences, some are a page long. It can be read cover to cover, or simply as a "dip in and out" book. Very highly recommended as an introduction to the principles of Zen, written in a casual, informative style which suits me and probably many other readers. highly recommended.

    As one would expect this book contains Zen thoughts and concepts. It is easy and accessible to read. A good 'kindle reference'.Recommended

Many of the little stories and verses really make you think. I enjoyed reading this very much and can go back to it when I feel low. I think its a must read for all !

    I enjoyed this simple book it did exactly what it was supposed to do. It helped me appreciate how if we keep things simple life can be a pleasant experience.

    I have just started to study Zen buddhism. This is a very good book on the subject and is very interesting to read.
