9780861713141: The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment: Part of the On Zen Practice collection

The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment takes the reader to the next level of Zen practice, exploring some of the more subtle and sophisticated topics in Zen.

The first two parts of the book explore enlightenment and delusion: What is nature of enlightenement? What does it mean to describe enlightenment as sudden or gradual? What is the nature of delusion, and how can watch out for the particular delusion that masquerades as enlightenment? The third part looks at "enlightenment in action"--what it means for someone to living and acting in order with the deep wisdom of enlightenment, and how we can practice learning "learning how to be satisfied" and enjoy serenity and transquility. The final section is a moving and powerful firsthand account of one woman's solitary realization of the deepest truths--a story that can become an inspiration for all of us. The contributors to this volume include some the pioneering masters who were seminal in helping Zen take firm root in American soil.

About the Author:

Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi (1931-95) was a Japanese Zen Buddhist teacher and roshi, and lineage holder in the Soto, Rinzai and Harada-Yasutani traditions of Zen. He combined the Rinzai use of koans and the Soto emphasis on shikantaza in his teachings, influenced by his years studying under Hakuun Yasutani in the Harada-Yasutani school. He founded or co-founded several institutions and practice centers, including the Zen Center of Los Angeles, White Plum Asanga, Yokoji Zen Mountain Center, and the Zen Mountain Monastery. Taizan Maezumi left behind twelve Dharma successors, appointed sixty-eight priests and gave Buddhist precepts to more than five hundred practitioners. Along with Zen teachers like Shunryu Suzuki-roshi, Seung Sahn Dae Soen Sa Nim, and Venerable Hsuan Hua, Maezumi greatly influenced the American Zen landscape. Several Dharma Successors of his-including Tetsugen Bernard Glassman, Dennis Merzel, John Daido Loori, Jan Chozen Bays, Gerry Shishin Wick, Charlotte Joko Beck, and William Nyogen Yeo-have gone on to found Zen communities of their own. Maezumi died unexpectedly while visiting Japan in 1995.

Bernard (Bernie) Tetsugen Glassman is a dharma heir to Hakuyu Taizan Maezumi. He is the founder of the Peacemaker Circle, the famous Greyston Mandala and the Greyston Bakery (featured on 60 Minutes). He is author of Infinite Circle and, with Jeff Bridges, The Dude and the Zen Master.

Chogyam Trungpa (1940-87), meditation master, teacher, and artist, founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books including Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom.

Review:

"The Venerable Taizan Maezumi Roshi's teaching has caused true Zen to penetrate into people's minds and has cut through the trappings of their ego-oriented intentions. Through his wisdom, Buddhadharma will shine into the world, dispelling the darkness of samsaric confusion and bringing the gentle rain of compassion." (Chogyam Trungpa, author of Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, from the foreword)

"Understanding of the nature of enlightenment and delusion are of prime importance to all spiritual seekers. Maezumi Roshi and Bernie Glassman clearly illuminate these topics in their book The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment. Their profound insight shines through the words in this classic book and will bring peace to those who fathom the depths of their teachings." (Gerry Shishin Wick, Roshi, PH.D., Abbot of Great Mountain Zen Center and author of The Book of Equanimity and The Great Heart Way)

"Maezumi Roshi was a remarkable teacher: subtle, meticulous and unpredictable. He had a depth and breadth of understanding that opened the hearts and minds of his students to the vast, mysterious web of existence and to the simplicity and wonder of our everyday lives. The Hazy Moon of Enlightenment is rich with brilliance and accessibility." (Nicolee Jikyo McMahon Roshi, Three Treasures Zen Community)
