The Three Pillars of Zen is the best book in English that has been written on Zen Buddhism. A moving, eye-opening work, The Three Pillars of Zen is the definitive introduction to the history and discipline of Zen. Roshi Philip Kapleau is the author of this book. Roshi, the man who founded one of the oldest and most influential Zen centers in the United States, presents a personal account of his own experiences as a student and teacher, and in so doing gives readers invaluable advice on how to develop their own practices. This book is a pillar itself in Zen Buddhism, especially Soto Zen.
It reinforces the drive to discover True Self in a new and alien way. Alien in the contrast of Western thinking with Eastern fundamental concepts and beliefs. Kapleau’s experience is unique and unlike the life of most Westerners, but he is the bridge in our melding with it. The writing is enjoyable and likely worthy of a second and perhaps third review. For anyone wishing to know more about Zen Buddhism, get this book.
