Essays in Zen Buddhism: Second Series. Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki. D T Suzuki is a scholar and this is a scholarly work not a self help book.

Essays in Zen Buddhism: Second Series. Essays in Zen Buddhism ( Third Series). Zen Buddhism: Selected Writings of D. T. Suzuki. Reading it now in my post enlightenment phase, I am amazed at it depth and the amount of information included between these covers. Back when I first read it there was not the vast material on Buddhism as there is now, so often these early works get put on the back burner.

Suzuki, Christmas Humphreys (Foreword). Jul 31, 2016 Chris Edward rated it really liked it. Shelves: philosophy, non-fiction, historical. I recommend this book to those interested in zen. A book on Zen is only valuable if it gets you closer to the path to enlightenment (satori). There's little intellectualizing one can do on the topic of zen before the logic becomes circuitous, and indeed all intellectualizing, however little, moves you farther away from the point into contradiction and confusion.

Zen devoid of satori is like a sun without its light and heat

At all events there is no Zen without satori, which is indeed the Alpha and Omega of Zen Buddhism. Zen devoid of satori is like a sun without its light and heat. Zen may lose all its literature, all its monasteries, and all its paraphernalia; but as long as there is satori in it it will survive to eternity. Essays in Zen Buddhism - .

In 1946, Christmas Humphreys, president of London’s Buddhist Society . In the remainder of Essays in Zen Buddhism, Suzuki goes on to equip us with the necessary tools of character and spirit for undertaking this task of a lifetime.

In 1946, Christmas Humphreys, president of London’s Buddhist Society, set out to undo the damage and traveled to Tokyo, where he began working with Suzuki on translating his new manuscripts and reprinting what remained of the old. The result was the timeless classic Essays in Zen Buddhism (public library), originally published in 1927 - a collection of Suzuki’s foundational texts introducing the principles of Zen into secular life as a discipline concerned first and foremost with what he called the reconstruction of character.

When the First Series of Zen Essays appeared in 1927, the author's intention was to write the Second Series soon after; but in the meantime the study of the Lankavatara as an important text of Zen Buddhism claimed his attention. The result appeared as Studies in the Lankavatara Sutra (1930), an English translation of the Sanskrit text of the Sutra itself (1932), and a Sanskrit, Chinese, and Tibetan Index of the Sutra (1933)

Included in this volume are Suzukiâ?™s famous study “Enlightenment and Ignorance,â? a chapter on “Practical Methods of Zen Instruction,â? the essays “On Satori — The Revelation of a New Truth in Zen Buddhismâ? and “History of Zen Buddhism from Bodhidharma to Hui-NÍng (Yeno),â? and his commentary on “The Ten Cow-herding Picturesâ? which have long been used in Zen to illustrate the stages of spiritual progress.

This analysis was classic scholar mode. A little hard to understand because of Sanskrit language at first but the author's handling of converting to English was enlightening. The deeper you get into the meat of the subject the reading becomes much easier. Although I did not give up on trying to pronounce the Sanskrit, it allowed me to understand the Indian roots to the Chinese culture that it became because of the difference in the two cultures. A friend gave me a magazine on United States adaptation of Buddhism and I found it comical to see Eastern Buddhism culture of poverty to the American way of making a buck. Well worth the effort for the historical significance. If you are looking for a twenty-first century model this is not for you. However, if you want to become a student of Buddhism it is a must!

A tough book to digest. It is deep and thorough but drags a bit with repetitive themes. Worth the read for one looking for a text book style presentation.

I just looked up what year these were published and nearly fell out of my seat when I saw 1927, this version I think came out in 1948. I first became interested in it in the 1960s when I was a philosophy major looking for enlightenment!!
Now I have then on my Kindle so I can't lose them as I did my original paper back. You can never lose a Kindle book thank to Amazon!!

D T Suzuki is a scholar and this is a scholarly work not a self help book. Reading it now in my post enlightenment phase, I am amazed at it depth and the amount of information included between these covers. Back when I first read it there was not the vast material on Buddhism as there is now, so often these early works get put on the back burner. I invite those who read it long ago like me to revisit it on their Kindle. For those who are serious about Zen, but who have not read it, I am sure you will be surprise like I am the amount of material that is here. Just remember this is not a Pema Chrodron book, this is a scholarly work but one of the greatest scholars on this subject.

I read Suzuki's first book in 1963 and reread it then studied Zen and I still think it influences who I am
Insanity
Another highly recommended work by Suzuki that is very readable and instructive.

DTZ has as much historical as academic creds by now. He was a pioneer in presenting Zen to the Western world. An academician rather than a Zen Master, he still knew more than most of his academic predecessors combined and had a good hand with the King's English.
Pruster
Dt Suzuki is hands down the best scholar of Zen and teaches that while his scholasticism is great, it is also necessary to know when to do away with the intellect and use intuition.
Some of the finest writing on Zen Buddhism ever! This series will show you what made Suzuki not only a master of the mind but also a master of the English language as well.
