Synopsis: From the complete koans of The Gateless Gate (a 13th–century collection of spiritual puzzles) to a generous selection of haiku, this inspirational anthology offers appealing Zen-based texts that bring insight and contemplation into busy modern lives. The excerpts, which include work both by the masters of the Golden Age of Zen as well as by contemporary writers, are not only thought-provoking and evocative, but rich in beauty and paradox.Many of the translations, as well as the foreword, are by Lucien Stryk, an esteemed poet and Zen practitioner, while scholar Dr. Miriam Levering places the writings in context and explores key concepts. Breathtaking photographs—many of them nature-based, with forest views, atmospheric skies, and rushing brooks—provide a magnificent visual framework.Readers are invited to open their imaginations to the harmony of text and image, and to let the quiet wisdom of both seep into their being.

About the Author: Dr Miriam Levering is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her numerous international teaching posts have taken her, among others, to the University of London and Stanford University in California.
