Synopsis: The beginner’s mind of Zen Buddhism is revealed through authentic sacred art and profoundly simple wisdom. Each month of this calendar features a Zenga masterwork from the world-renowned Gitter-Yelen collection paired with quotes from the best-selling classic, Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind by Shunryu Suzuki. Mr. Suzuki (1905-1971), author of Zen Mind, Beginner’s Mind, which has sold over 1,000,000 copies since it was first published in 1970, was a direct spiritual descendent of the thirteenth century Zen master Dogen.
Zenga art (Zen-inspired brushstroke art) surprises and confounds our expectations, and yet, these artworks, created by 17th and 18th century monks who were amateur painters, have a startlingly modern appeal. They represent the "transmission beyond words" that is at the heart of the Zen tradition. The Gitter-Yelen collection of Zenga painting is widely regarded as the one of the preeminent collections in the west.
In the beginner’s mind there is no thought, " I have attained something."
All self-centered thoughts limit our vast mind.
