The highly influential book that helped bring Eastern spiritual principles to the Western world.

One of the world's leading authorities on Zen Buddhism, and a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, D. T. Suzuki was the author of more than a hundred works on the subject in both Japanese and English, and was most instrumental in bringing the teachings of Zen Buddhism to the attention of the Western world.

Written in a lively, accessible, and straightforward manner, An Introduction to Zen Buddhism is illuminating for the serious student and layperson alike. Suzuki provides a complete vision of Zen, which emphasizes self-understanding and enlightenment through many systems of philosophy, psychology, and ethics. With a foreword by the renowned psychiatrist Dr. Carl Jung, this volume has been acknowledged a classic introduction to the subject. It provides, along with Suzuki's Essays in Zen Buddhism and Manual of Zen Buddhism , a framework for living a balanced and fulfilled existence through Zen.

I think all books on Zen should be as thin as this one is. I am sure all books on Zen would wish to have the foreword this one has: worth checking out, for the foreword alone!
