9780972804912: In The Belly Of The Dragon vol. 1

"Entering the Way is not difficult, But you must not love, or hate, or choose, or reject." It took eight years for Rei Ryu Philippe Coupey to complete his kusen (oral commentary) on the Shinjinmei of Master Sosan. Given during zazen (sitting practice) by a respected teacher, kusen are the genuine, immediate link between teaching and practice in Zen. This collected work vivifies the ancient Zen text for modern students of the Way, and is a valuable resource for all those interested in Eastern thought and religion.

From the Publisher:

In the Belly of the Dragon is a critical accompaniment to the Shinjinmei, as it dives into the heart of the text and delivers its message in a clear and approachable way. Recommended reading for any serious Zen student.

Translator for this work: Elaine Konopka
Editor: Richard Collins
