Synopsis

This book gives a fascinating survey of the early years of Chinese Zen (Chan) Buddhism, staying focused on the movement of Buddhism to the land where Taoism and Confucianism flourished. Wu's survey, combined with interesting translations from these earliest Zen masters, reveals a time of spiritual vibrancy and powerful personalities that help explain the later developments of Zen with which western readers are more familiar.

Great Read.
March 22nd, 2014
One of the best books on the origins and facets of Zen I've ever read. The introduction by Thomas Merton was a wonderfully surprise. His insights are very profitable.
