This text explains what Zen is and how you can experience it irrespective of your religious beliefs. It explains the history of Zen systematically, tracing its Indian origins through Chinese flowering to its spread to Japan and Vietnam. Drawing upon the fundamental teaching of Hui Neng's Platform Sutra, considered by many to be the bible of Zen Buddhism, Wong Kiew Kit explains the philosophy and principles that lie behind Zen practice. In addition to explaining the history and theories of Zen, there are practical exercises to improve physical and mental well-being.
