About the Author:

Zen Master (Ta Hui) Gilbert is a monk in the Cho Ke Order of Korea. He was born in Oakland, California in 1909 and began the practice of Pranayama Yoga at the age of fourteen. After years of various yogic practices, he became involved in Zen Buddhism.

In 1973, Master Gilbert was recognized as a Zen Master by his teacher, the Venerable Dr. Seo Kyung-bo of Korea, who later designated Master Gilbert as his Dharma successor in the United States. Master Gilbert teaches and conducts services at various Zen temples in the United States.

The author is also a cartoonist whose work centers around Zen themes. Master Gilbert feels that humor is an effective way to activate an intuitive knowing of the truth of ourselves.

Book Description Blue Dolphin Publishing, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Master Gilbert s book is a fresh approach to Zen. He does not adhere to tradition nor does he deny it. The work seems light and humorous, but his pen is a Zen sword and it is very sharp indeed. Humor is an integral part of Zen and here it is employed with consummate skill. Those who have studied under Master Gilbert know him for his gentle humanism. They know too that he can, in one flash of incisive wit, burst conceptual bubbles in a cascade of laughter. In the book be aware of the little dog with his bone. He is often depicted as saying, This bone is delicious. This is a most important clue. This book, then, is a finger pointed at the moon. If the reader can stop staring at the finger and look at the moon, the moon will be revealed smiling back at the looker. When the little ego is recognized for what it is, then the Buddha will romp and play, filling the world with unimpeded laughter. Master Gilbert s book may just be the instrument that will help bring this about. Ven. Dr. Seo Kyung Bo, Zen Master of the Il Bung Son Won Sect in Korea, Tripitaka (Scriptures) Master and Master of Chan-pil Calligraphy. Bookseller Inventory # NLF9780931892219
