Nyogen Senzaki, a colleague of Dr. D.T. Suzuki, was one of the first Zen masters to come from Japan to the United States. He is the author of" Like a Dream, Like a Fantasy." Ruth Strout McCandless studied at Stanford University and Claremont Graduate School and in 1941 began her association with Senzaki. In 1955, while under the tutelage of Soen Nakagawa at Ryutaku-ji, she became the first Western woman to stay at a Zen monastery. She was one of the editors of "The Iron Flute," a collection of ancient Zen koans with essays by Senzaki.Críticas:
This is truly a book whose one aim is to dipel any myths about Buddhism to the westerner and begin the path to enlightenment. Buddhism and Zen is set to the pace of the beginner, taking time to explain things and thus insure proper understanding, both through a modern question and answer section and a classical interpretation of an ancient Buddhist text. Whether you're an avid Zen scholar or just a curious American, this book will meet all of your needs and then some. --By Matt - 7 April 2001
