About the Author

John Daido Loori (1931-2009) was one of the West's leading Zen masters. He was the founder and spiritual leader of the Mountains and Rivers Order and abbot of Zen Mountain Monastery. His work has been most noted for its unique adaptation of traditional Asian Buddhism into an American context, particularly with regard to the arts, the environment, social action, and the use of modern media as a vehicle of spiritual training and social change. Loori was an award-winning photographer and videographer. His art and wildlife photography formed the core of a unique teaching program that integrated art and wilderness training by cultivating a deep appreciation of the relationship of Zen to our natural environment. He was a dharma heir of the influential Japanese Zen master Taizan Maezumi Roshi and he authored many books.


"This book is living testimony that the flower of the Buddha's enlightenment has crossed the Pacific Ocean unsullied and taken root in American soil."-- Tricycle

"Sufficiently deep, yet clear and easy to read, this has the potential to become a fundamental handbook broadening practice in this country."-- Publishers Weekly
