An Introduction to Zen Buddhism  "An Introduction to Zen Buddhism"
"An Introduction to Zen Buddhism" was written by Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki and published in 1934 in Kyoto by the Eastern Buddhist Society. It was designed to bring the teachings of Zen Buddhism to the attention of the Western world.
Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki, Professor of Buddhist Philosophy in the Otani University, Kyoto, was considered among the greatest authorities on Buddhist philosophy, and is certainly the greatest authority on Zen Buddhism. His major works in English on the subject of Buddhism number a dozen or more, and of his works in Japanese as yet unknown to the West there are at least eighteen.
Written in a lively, accessible, and straightforward manner, An Introduction to Zen Buddhism is illuminating for everyone interested in Zen culture. Dr. Suzuki provides a complete vision of Zen, which emphasizes self-understanding and enlightenment through many systems of philosophy, psychology, and ethics. This book provides, along with Dr. Suzuki's "Essays" and "Manual of Zen Buddhism", a framework for living a balanced and fulfilled existence through Zen.
