The final section of the book, entitled "Living Zen," addresses the ways in which Zen can help us to realize a deeper, fuller life though such artistic activities as poetry, brush painting, the martial arts, tea ceremony, and flower arrangement.

Zen is essentially a practice and not a dogma; no amount of theory or discussion will ever take the place of a few minutes of practice. Among the many books about Zen, there are few that explain simply, to the interested beginner, how to do Zen—how to just sit down and begin to work toward fulfillment of the promises offered by Zen. Zen Meditation Plain and Simple answers this need with concise, easily understood instructions on how to incorporate Zen into your daily life. Albert Low makes no glib claims or promises. He admits that the way of Zen is not an easy one to follow. But, for those willing to stop talking about Zen, stop thinking about Zen, and start working to be and do in the manner of Zen, Zen Meditation Plain and Simple offers just the right tool to get the job done.

Most of us think problems are inevitable. Not only do we spend a huge portion of our time and energy figuring out how to solve them, but at soon as we solve one, another pops up to take its place. Instead of enjoying the beautiful day, we fret, worry and dwell upon how to maneuver the next roadblock in our path. Filled with stress and worry, we accumulate information and education to insure that our lives are safe, successful and secure. And yet, life happens as it does. Most of the time we are too busy to notice how life is happening, what the moment is bringing, or the wonderful person who just passed by. So much healing, wisdom and happiness, right in front of us, is never seen, touched or tasted. What if it were possible to approach life differently? What if we could find out how to enjoy each experience that arises, and not make a problem of anything? Who would we be then? What would our days be like? Do you know the secret to living a problem free life? THE ZEN ROAD TO HAPPINESS offers a totally new way of walking through our days. Based upon Zen practice and principles, this book shows how we create problems, and teaches how to stop. Zen takes us on along a different path. Some call it the road to awakening. Readers will see what fuels their worries and how to pull the plug on these fuels and see life differently. Filled with information and wonderful exercises, No Problem, No Worry will enable you to turn problems into growth and adventure, and show you how to live your life with the utmost joy.

THIS BOOK WILL HELP YOU• to appreciate the significance of this particular school of Buddhism,famous for its focus on meditation and self-awakening• to understand the history of Zen and the ‘Ways of Zen’• to discover how Zen is a way of life — not a belief system• to avoid faux pas in conversation, in travelling and in personal relationshipsZen (in Chinese, Ch’an) is the form of Buddhism which the great teacher Bodhidharma brought to China from India in the late fifth century. Today it is practised mainly in Japan and Korea,. Based upon the understanding that each of us has the potential for complete awakening, Zen is in fact a coalition of practical ways of stilling the mind in order to attain self-knowledge. Because the realization of the true nature of reality, including one’s own, is not an intellectual pursuit but an experienced truth, Zen teachers transmit the truth (dharma) from mind to mind or heart to heart without the use of words, using different techniques to break through the limitations of the logical mind. This engaging book explains the essence of Zen in simple terms.. It traces its development and looks at its unique methods of teaching, such as meditation, koans — startling paradoxes that stop the intellect — the use of texts, ceremonies, poetry, and the martial arts. It describes life in monasteries and in the everyday world. Because Zen is rooted in Reality, its practitioners often experience a delightful sense of wonder in the commonplace. This democratic and liberating philosophy does not require us to give up our own traditions, but rather helps us to deepen our understanding of them, and continues to inspire growing numbers of followers in the West.ACCESS THE WORLD’S RELIGIONSSimple Guides: Religion is a series of concise, accessible introductions to the world’s major religions.
