The Most Important Point: Zen Teachings of Edward Espe Brown
A tightly edited book of nearly 60 essays based on Edward Brown's best dharma talks that reads in the tradition of Paul Reps' classic Zen Flesh, Zen Bones or the great Shunryu Suzuki's Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind. It can be read bite by bite or front to back. A wide range of topics include basic sitting practice, embracing the distasteful, being at home in your body, confronting uncertainty, feeling like a fraud, the meaning of true calm, accepting all that is, and making the "perfect" biscuit. Flavored with wise insights and irreverent humor, it brings together a treasury of timeless teachings to inspire your discovery of what "the most important point" is for you.
