One of the leading twentieth-century works on Zen, D.T. Suzuki's Zen and Japanese Culture is an invaluable source for those wishing to understand Zen concepts in the context of Japanese life and art.
Zen and the Love of Nature takes us on a captivating journey from a single lotus flower to a rippling brook to the grandeur of Mount Fuji, giving us a Zen perspective of the joy and beauty of our world, of Nature as our constant friend and companion, and of the love of Nature that is the predominant note in the Japanese character.
In simple, often poetic language, extensively enhanced by anecdotes and poetry, D.T. Suzuki guides us to a new appreciation and understanding of the joy, wonder and beauty of the world around us--leading us to a new freedom and emancipation from the pressures and demands of our daily life.
