Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

The description of a Zen path of one Westerner who began by seeking for the sense of it all, and who came to realize at least a part of it.

From the Publisher:

"A Glimpse of Nothingness is so honest--so 'Zen'--that it contains...just life....it's just truth." --San Francisco Review

"This is a book that deserves serious attention...eminently readable, easy to relate to on several different levels, and a fascinating and encouraging tale of human communal endeavor." --The New York Times Book Review

"I was pleasantly surprised to find the book enjoyable...the main virtue of this book is van de Wetering's skill for re-creating places, feelings, scenes, and encounters. The book is relaxed, alternately serious and humorous, and insightful. A Glimpse of Nothingness describes the Zen path of one Westerner who began by seeking for the sense of it all, and who came to realize at least a part of it." --The Shambhala Review

"The most down-to-earth account of the Zen discipline ever written for Westerners...van de Wetering clears away the thicket of intellectualization and mannered inscrutability and gets down to the ordinariness of Zen. Even those who normally reject spiritual trips...will find this dogged, bourgeois seeker hard to ignore." --Kirkus Reviews
