    One thought on “Returning to Silence”

    1. Ein schweres Buch, aber mit seltsamer Wirkung, denn nach dem Lesen scheinbar sich wiederholender und im mahnenden Ton manchmal unerquicklichen Abschnitten, bleibt eine tiefere Einsicht in das Verständnis des Lebens – und das kann man wahrlich nicht jedem Buch nachsagen. Fazit: Mehrmals lesen (vom Erkenntniswert höher liegt noch Benoits Buch "Zen and the Psychology of Transformation")

    2. "Il significato principale della vacuità" (Dainin Katagiri)"La vacuità è ciò che ci permette di aprire gli occhi per vedere direttamente che cos'è l'essere. [] Dobbiamo assumerci la responsabilità dei risultati di ciò che abbiamo fatto, ma l'obbiettivo finale è quello di non farci ossessionare dal risultato, che sia buono, cattivo o neutro. È questo che chiamiamo vacuità. Questo è il significato principale della vacuità.[] La cosa importante è non farci prendere dall'ossessione o da [...]

    3. Very good information, but sometimes difficult to understand. The book is based on lectures, not a concerted effort to sit down and write. It's also a book that one should study, not necessarily read from beginning to end to arrive at a conclusion. The content is heavy at times, and if one has little experience or practice in the Zen Buddhist tradition, one can become lost pretty quickly. This is not a beginner's Zen text by any means.

    4. A dense but deeply humane, humble and challenging book. A whole different beast from the many new age self-help Zen manuals out there.

    5. Stunning book on the essence of Zen; of interest to anyone (with half a brain) interested in aesthetics.

    6. Incredible book on Zen, not to mention an essential link between the spiritual and the aesthetic.
