BOOK EXCERPT:

The Way of Zen begins as a succinct guide through the histories of Buddhism and Taoism leading up to the development of Zen Buddhism, which drew deeply from both traditions. It then goes on to paint a broad but insightful picture of Zen as it was and is practiced, both as a religion and as an element of diverse East Asian arts and disciplines. Watts's narrative clears away the mystery while enhancing the mystique of Zen. Since the first publication of this book in 1957, Zen Buddhism has become firmly established in the West. As Zen has taken root in Western soil, it has incorporated much of the attitude and approach set forth by Watts in The Way of Zen, which remains one of the most important introductory books in Western Zen.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Here is something quite unfamiliar to the West, something which will appeal strongly to all who are trying to find deeper reality in life than philosophy and conventional religion can express. Historically, Zen is an aspect of Buddhism, but in itself it is so vital and elusive that it escapes definition. To be understood it must be lived. As a way of life it is the highest achievement of the Chinese spirit and the inspiration of its greatest art. Through Zen, Chinese culture reinforms our own with new meaning and offers us altogether new possibilities in a world of change. Contents Include: The Origins of Zen The Secret of Zen The Technique of Zen Life in a Zen Community Zen and the Civilization of the Far East

BOOK EXCERPT:

What is the way of Zen in Vietnam? Is there only one answer, or many? Should the answer be a wordless gesture? Who has the authority to answer those questions? This book is written to give a glimpse of the way of Zen in Vietnam. Personally, I am nobody. Though I have studied and practiced Zen for nearly half a century, I feel I will always remain a student of Zen. Readers can find many of the sentences here in some books of Buddhism in Vietnam; some are my memories of the things I've read or heard. The comments and the English translation in this book are mine; otherwise will be indicated. Three of those I am indebted to are Zen Master Thích Thanh Từ, Prof. Lê Mạnh Thát, and researcher Trần Đình Sơn. In this book, I use many poems that were translated into modern Vietnamese language by the three scholars above. The ancient Zen masters in Vietnam wrote poems in the Chinese and Nôm languages. At times, I paraphrase poems into simple prose to make them easier to understand. This book is not for profit. You are free to copy or reproduce noncommercially. May all beings be healthy and happy; may all beings be free. Đường lối Thiền Tông tại Việt Nam là gì? Có một câu trả lời, hay nhiều hơn? Hay là, câu trả lời nên là một cử chỉ không lời? Ai có thẩm quyền trả lời những câu hỏi đó? Sách này được viết để cho một cái nhìn về Thiền Tông tại Việt Nam. Bản thân tôi không là gì cả. Dù tôi học và thực tập Thiền trong gần nửa thế kỷ, tôi cảm thấy mình vẫn là một Thiền sinh vĩnh viễn. Độc giả có thể thấy nhiều câu nơi đây trong các sách về Phật Giáo Việt Nam; một số là ký ức tôi nhớ về những gì tôi đã đọc hay nghe. Các ghi nhận và phần Anh dịch trong sách là của tác giả, trường hợp khác sẽ kể rõ tên người ghi nhận. Ba tác giả tôi mang ơn là Thiền sư Thích Thanh Từ, Giáo sư Lê Mạnh Thát và nhà nghiên cứu Trần Đình Sơn; trong sách này, tôi sử dụng nhiều bài thơ được ba học giả này dịch sang tiếng Việt hiện nay. Các Thiền sư tại Việt Nam nhiều thế kỷ trước đã làm thơ bằng tiếng Hán và tiếng Nôm. Có những lúc, tôi chuyển các bài thơ sang văn xuôi đơn giản để dễ hiểu hơn. Sách này viết không vì lợi nhuận. Ai cũng có quyền tự do sao chép hay phổ biến lại, một cách phi thương mại. Xin nguyện cho tất cả chúng sinh được sức khỏe và hạnh phúc; xin nguyện cho tất cả chúng sinh được giải thoát.
