I have  not read Dr. Suzuki.  I will have to check him out.

I like to read Shunyro Suzuki. 

My earliest readings in Zen were by Eugene Herrigel, The Method of Zen, and then later Zen in the Art of Archery.

Dr. SUZUKI was someone else, very popular on T.V. Documentaries ect...

D.T.Suzuki is the man that I am referring to.

Thanks.

the zen doctrine of no mind?

Shayne, here you are displaying your ignorance.

The zen doctrine of no mind is not about the mind not existing.

So therefore to slander what I post as malarky is the mark of a cretin.

I have asked many questions in response to many  posts and I still do.

But I use respect.

You posted what you did here for the sake of disgreement, for the fact that you have not read the book confirms that.

I dont care if you are bi-polar or a bi-sexual polar bear. Get your mind right. Dont be disrespectful, dont slander and learn the difference between being over opinionative and being of a different understanding.

i wasnt slandering you per say.

mainly the title of the book.

which suggests well no mind.

and im AGAINST such stuff.

siddhartha would also disapprove if it contained works of non attention which has been advocted here.

just to explain myself.

other that that.

is it a good read?
