This is an excellent book that manages to present in a relaxed style and with depth the whole practice of Zen – teachings, meditation, rituals, daily life. The author shows with simplicity that a thousand-year-old tradition from the Far East is now a natural practice in the West”. Pierre Dôkan Crépon, author of The Art of Zazen. The Illustrated Guide to Zen offers us a complete and captivating picture of the different aspects of Sōtō Zen Buddhism. With dynamic and detailed illustrations, and clear and colorful writing, Zen monk Seigaku Amato leads us to the discovery of Buddhism by describing with warmth and accuracy the practices and forms of Sōtō Zen. Whether you are taking your first steps into Zen or have been practicing for years, this profound and creative book will become a faithful companion as you explore topics such as: • a brief history of Zen Buddhism, • an overview of the representations of the various Buddhas and bodhisattvas, • an introduction to the different practices of Zen, including meditation (zazen), practice at work (samu) and while taking meals (ōryōki), • the essentials concerning festivals, ceremonies, temple instruments and religious clothing, • and a practical guide to setting up an altar at home.
