Endless Vow: The Zen Path of Soen Nakagawa
Soen Nakagawa Roshi (1907-1984) was an extraordinary Zen master and a key figure in the transmission of Zen Buddhism from Japan to the Western world. A man of many faces, he was a simple Japanese monk, a world traveler, a spiritualized being of the highest order, a poetic genius, a creator of dynamic calligraphy - and a notoriously eccentric teacher who, for example, was known to conduct "tea ceremonies" using instant coffee and styrofoam cups. Endless Vow is the first English-language collection of the literary works of this remarkable teacher.
