An accessible guide, the Little Book of Zen features Zen meditations for a variety of purposes, and includes inspirational sayings to help you practise Zen.
This bitesize book falls into two parts, starting with an introduction to Zen and a description of the way to get the best out of it. It gives a short history of the practice, which originated in Japan after adaptation from a Chinese philosophy, and shows how the benefits of Zen are just as relevant today. It also includes a variety of easy-to-use meditations for relaxation, stress relief and enlightenment. The second half of the book features categories of Zen-type quotations on life, happiness, nature and more.
'Your mind is a powerful thing. When you filter it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change.' - Gautama Buddha
'The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.' - Ralph Waldo Emerson
