Morning Star : New and Selected Zen Writings
The Morning Star is a refinement of the thoughts of a Zen Buddhist writer and teacher known for his clarity, compassion and insight. The introduction to this volume offers Robert Aitken's latest presentation of Zen practice, addressing the great matter from a historical and personal perspective. This wonderful, long piece is followed by twenty-nine essays, gathered into three sections: "The Basics," "Commentaries," and "Reflections." Aitken has selected work from his previous books and added much new material never before available in book form. The resulting capstone becomes a book to cherish and study for all people interested in the spiritual path.
