Reviews
"The word Zen has become an inkblot upon which the West projects its myriad notions of peace, relaxation, and personal fulfillment, usually to commercial ends (there's a Zen Tanning Salon in LA, after all.) Meido Moore is having none of this. The Rinzai Zen Way is a thorough and accessible primer on the history, principles, and practices of authentic Rinzai Zen Buddhism. He offers detailed instructions on how to meditate, chant, work with a teacher, understand the teachings, and manifest them in your daily life, and so helps to restore the word Zen to its proper place."--Shozan Jack Haubner, author of Zen Confidential and Single White Monk

"Meido Zentetsu Roshi has produced a concise introduction to the practice of Rinzai Zen as understood from the Japanese Ōmori Sōgen tradition within the Tenryū-ji line of Rinzai Zen. This small book encompasses not only the spirit of Zen practice with concrete advice, but also offers practical instructions on how to harmonize the body and breath for deepening one's practice. It is a wonderful guide for anyone who is serious in taking up the Zen path and working with a teacher."--Guo Gu, author of Passing through the Gateless Barrier

"For readers interested in sitting down and beginning a meditation practice, The Rinzai Zen Way offers lucid instruction, good advice, and encouragement. For readers interested in intellectual and conceptual understanding, this wonderfully readable book gives us much to think about."--Reading Religion
