The Roaring, Stream: A New Zen Reader is a groundbreaking, immensely readable anthology drawn From the vast corpus of Ch'an and Zen Buddhist literature. It offers readers a tour through more than a millennium of writing, presenting one masterpiece after another in chronological progression. "You can dip into the waters of this stream, again and again, at any point Finding refreshment and perspective, " notes Robert Aitken in his introduction. "A year From now you can dip in again and find treasures that were not at all evident the First time." From lectures to letters, brief poems to extended disquisitions, this collection is an ideal point of entry For newcomers to the Zen tradition, and an essential sourcebook For those who are already " on the way."

"Now the masterpieces of Zen Buddhist writing are availa6le in a single volume," applauds Library Journal. "[This] will be the standard introduction to Zen Buddhism For years to come."

From Library Journal:

Now, thanks to Zen teacher Foster and Shoemaker, the editor in chief at Counterpoint, the masterpieces of Zen Buddhist writings are available in a single volume. The editors include writings from the Chinese Ch'an Buddhism out of which Zen grew as well as poetry and other writings foundational to the Japanese Zen traditions. The collection gathers voices as diverse as Bodhidharma, the Indian Buddhist monk who brought Buddhism and tea to China, and Basho, the great Japanese Zen haikai poet. Each selection is introduced by a brief essay setting the writers in context. Because of its range and the wealth of its materials, this volume will be the standard introduction to Zen Buddhism for years to come. Highly recommended.
