In Buddha, Tao, Zen, "Father of American Beat Zen" Dwight Goddard reveals the history of Zen's transmission and development, from Shakyamuni Buddha's Enlightenment in India, to Bodhidharma's journey to bring the Dharma to China, through a succession of remarkable teachers, ending with Hui-neng, the Sixth Patriarch of Buddhism, whose experiential insight into traditional Chinese Taoism gave Chinese Ch’an and Japanese Zen their characteristic form and spirit. In The Gateless Gate, discover the 48 essential koans of Zen Buddhism, those "mind-puzzle" stories used by Zen Masters throughout the ages to unlock their students' minds, illuminated by the sometimes biting commentary of 13th Century Zen Master Mumon. Bringing two classic Zen texts together in one slim, portable volume, A Pocketful of Zen is the ultimate hip-pocket companion for modern Zen seekers traveling the path to Enlightenment.
