Zen, from its foundation in China of the 6th
Century A.D., has always been more than a
religion. It is an intriguing system of principles
and practices designed to give each individual
the experience of eternity in a split second, the
knowledge of divinity in every living thing. Zen
For Beginners uses an engaging mix of clear,
informative writing and delightful illustrations to
document the story of Zen from its impact on
Chinese and Japanese culture to its influence on
American writers such as Allen Ginsberg, Jack
Kerouac, and Gary Snyder.
