Synopsis: This comprehensive volume of writings and lectures spans thirty-two years of this popular teacher's career, from 1964 to 1996. Topics include Zen training and practice; Buddhist ethics; illness, death, and dying; and Zen in America. Roshi Philip Kapleau underwent thirteen years of formal training in Japan with two of Japan's most noted Zen masters, Harada Roshi and Yasutani Roshi. Roshi Kapleau returned to the United States in 1966 and has made it his life's work to translate Zen Buddhism into an American idiom.
Review: You could call him the first patriarch of Zen in America, and American he is. The beauty of Awakening to Zen is Philip Kapleau's attention to the concerns of a Western seeker. Using examples as diverse as Vladimir Horowitz, the Rocky Mountains, and a common wristwatch, Kapleau answers questions about Zen in a compassionate, readily accessible way. His decades as head of an American Zen monastery, not to mention his broad-reading and sharp intellect, yield an abundance of valuable guidance for a Westerner who struggles with Zen's foreignness.
