Learning the Language of Dragons: Zen Koans Introduction

4.5 out of 5

This product is an informative guide to koans, offering insight into the importance of lineage, the practice of “just sitting,” and the use of koan practice to achieve awakening. The author, James Ford, presents a detailed description of zazen (meditation), focusing primarily on koan introspection. Koans are described as “public cases” from China that enhance one’s experience of Zen and serve as a medium for exploration of Zen’s history, culture, and view. The book also includes a translation of the Heart Sutra, Zen’s central scripture. With its rich textual sources and contemporary teacher perspectives, this book sheds new light on ancient teachings.
