In No Beginning, No End, Zen master Jakusho Kwong-roshi shows us how to treasure the ordinary activities of our daily lives through an understanding of simple Buddhist practices and ideas. The author‰_s spontaneous, poetic, and pragmatic teachings‰ÛÓso reminiscent of his spiritual predecessor Shunryu Suzuki (Zen Mind, Beginner‰_s Mind)‰ÛÓtransport us on an exciting journey into the very heart of Zen and its meaningful traditions. Because Kwong-roshi can transmit the most intimate thing in the most accessible way, we learn how to ignite our own vitality, wisdom, and compassion and awaken a feeling of intimacy with the world. It is like having a conversation with our deepest and wisest self.

Jakusho Kwong-roshi was originally inspired to study Zen because of zenga, the ancient art of Zen calligraphy. Throughout this book he combines examples of his own unique style of calligraphy, with less-known stories from the Zen tradition, personal anecdotes‰ÛÓincluding moving and humorous stories of his training with Suzuki-roshi‰ÛÓand his own lucid and inspiring teachings. All of this comes together to create an intimate expression of the enlightening world of Zen.
