These two exquisitely designed volumes draw on the writings of two ancient masters of spiritual and meditative thought to provide a guide for affirmation and contemplation.[Body copy]The Book of Nothing, or Hsin Hsin Ming, was written in the sixth century by Sosan, the third Zen patriarch. Long cherished by seekers on the path as a study in spiritual perfection, it is brought to you here in a new translation that is both beautifully illustrated and highly readable. The Book of Nothing is remarkable for its brevity and for the simplicity in which it describes the silence experienced by the empty mind of Zen. Each line reads as a simple meditation that enlightens the heart and mind into silence and relaxation.The Book of Everything is a lavishly illustrated book that offers a fresh translation of The Walled Garden of Truth by the 12th century poet Hakim Sanai. This inspiring and enlightening Sufi sutra is composed of short passages on each page, updated with the modern reader in mind. Hakim Sanai's original text of The Walled Garden of Truth inspired Jallaludin Rumi to write his famous work The Mathnawi.
