‘In Japan we have an expression, ‘Float like Cloud, Flow like Water’. Its meaning is: to live free and unconstrained’
In this short introduction to Zen Buddhism, a practising Japanese monk shares the many lessons he has learned from life inside a temple. With charm and humour, he guides us through everything from meditation to tea-drinking ceremonies, the meaning of koans to preparing Zen food.
Accompanied by the author’s own illustrations, this book invites you to change your perception through the wisdom of monastic life.
