    In this classic work of spiritual guidance, the founder of the Rochester Zen Center presents a comprehensive overview of Zen Buddhism. Exploring the three pillars of Zen - teaching, practice, and enlightenment - Roshi Philip Kapleau, the man who founded one of the oldest and most influential Zen centers in the United States, presents a personal account of his own experiences as a student and teacher, and in so doing gives listeners invaluable advice on how to develop their own practices. Revised and updated, this edition features a new afterword by Sensei Bodhin Kjolhede, who succeeded Kapleau as spiritual director of the Rochester Zen Center. A moving, eye-opening work, The Three Pillars of Zen is the definitive introduction to the history and discipline of Zen.

    Insightful....

    I have read/listened to a fair amount of spiritually based books, from different practices, over the years......
    this is by far the most comprehendible one so far on the understanding of zen.

    Enlightenment achieved

    I have been slowly walking down the path not necessarily to enlightenment but to awareness. I was riding on a tractor at night on the farm spreading manure while listening to the audio version of this book. While listening to the koan “mu” I dissolved into the universe. Tears and joy alternated as I was one with the awareness. My lasting impact is like others with near death experiences where seeing my eternal me has freed me from the fear of death. Forever grateful for all those seen and unseen that guided me to this awareness.

    Guidebook on Zan Buddhism

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Three Pillars of Zen to be better than the print version?

    You can't compare the two because they are the same thing just in different formats. Personally I own both & the previous audible version. I much prefer the previous narrator Bodhin Kjolhede. Bodhin Kjolhede was a student of the author Roshi Kjolhede & his successor & has an authentic tone & was much more enjoyable to listen too.

    What other book might you compare The Three Pillars of Zen to and why?

    "Body & Mind Are One: A training In Mindfulness" by Thich Nhat Hanh. Also "Peach Is Every Step" by Thich Nhat Hanh. Both of these books along with The Three Pillars of Zen both are essentially about Buddhist philosophy. Thich Nhat Hanh's books primarily focus on the practice of mindfulness While Three Pillars of Zen is mostly a how too on two traditions of Japanese Zen Buddhism which focus on sitting & walking silent meditation, History of Zen, the authors personall training in zen in Japan & his personal practice as roshi (teacher) & how he adapted his teaching for westerners with approval of his teachers while keeping true to the traditions. Roshi Philip Kapleu founded The Rochester Zen Center in Rochester, NY whis was the first Budhist Zen center in the U.S.

    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    The narrator was ok. Honestly I'm partial to the narrator of the previous audible version Bodhin Kjolhede. Bodhin Kjolhede was a student of the author Roshi Philip Kapleu & his successor & has an authentic tone & was much more enjoyable to listen too.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Three Pillars of Zen is mostly a how too on two traditions of Japanese Zen Buddhism which focus on sitting & walking silent meditation, History of Zen, the authors personall training in zen in Japan & his personal practice as roshi (teacher) & how he adapted his teaching for westerners with approval of his teachers while keeping true to the traditions. Roshi Philip Kapleu founded The Rochester Zen Center in Rochester, NY whis was the first Budhist Zen center in the U.S.

    inspired my meditation practice

    Having come to Zen from other disciplines, I found this book to be helpful in defining Zen from other kinds of meditation. Descriptions of retreat experiences inspired me to try one myself. Diary entries of those who became enlightened are very helpful in navigating my zazen sit experiences.

    Zen explained for the west. Classic Japanese Zen.

    I have read many books on Buddhism with a special focus on the practice of Zen. There are many forms of Zen Buddhism depending what traditional beliefs were already in place in the place when Monks came they appreciate tradition so, practices were adjusted, but the same basic message was always the same. We are all Buddha. This book is a translation from one of the last classic Zen Masters in Japan after World war 2. He did a splendid job of explaining what the difference between meditation and Zazen is. and his teachings get deeper and he tells storys that westerners can relate to. My Sanga uses the teachings of this book as the guide for our practice.
    The reader was wonderful. he went slow and his perfect pronounciation of the Japanese made it very easy to follow the different name references as well as the formal and informal traditions. I will look for more books read by this person.
    The basic core training practices are introduced and explained rather well. A good job was done to stay on point even while in deep dissertation regarding an in depth topic.
    this book is my favorite purchase of a digital book and I listen to it often.

    The essential work on Zen for Westerners

    This volume has become indispensable for Westerners wanting to understand how Zen came to the US.

    The voice that speaks to us is that of an interpreted Zen master, seeking to encourage and chide, lead and goad along the path to Zen's ultimate destination.

    This book is worthy of a reading and a rereading. It is deeper than most can grasp in one pass.

    even the acolytes don't read this nonsense

    this incoherent drivel will put you to sleep in 5 minutes. i attended a zen temple for a year (directly under the author's lineage) and they all politely scoffed at this tome's ramblings. stay away if you want enlightenment in your lifetime!

    Confusing

    Not an introductory book... Could not follow the narration. Not enough background information for base knowledge.

    interesting

    astonishingly unpretentious. can probably be listened to as a personal aid to self realization, but as well as a means for gaining insight into the inner structures of Zen practice. No esoteric after taste...

    Wonderful book

    Wonderful book even the afterword is worth the money. Sean Runette is a good narrator.

    Another speaker

    Unfortunately with this speaker is no way to listen to the end. Here are a lot of non americans. He is very hard to understand and has not a nice voice were you could listen for hours. It would be better with an British English speaker.
