About the book:

Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki had a profound and lasting influence in bringing the teachings of Buddhism to the Western world. He lectured and wrote widely on the subject of Zen Buddhism and published some fifty books in Japanese and English, as well as a variety of articles and essays. For his famous two-volume translation of and commentary on the Lankavatara Sutra he was awarded an Hon. D. Litt. by Otani University in Kyoto.

In this collection of essays and lectures, Dr. Suzuki illuminates a range of topics, from Mahayana Buddhism generally to the Zen school in particular; from Japanese art and culture to the first English translation of a sermon from the "Sayings of Rinzai"; from formal lectures to informal talks delivered to an enraptured audience at the Buddhist society in London; from the relationship between Zen Buddhism and Western psychology to a moving lecture on "The Supreme Spiritual Ideal."

A brilliant and intuitive scholar, Dr. Suzuki communicates his insights in a lucid and energetic fashion. Thus "The Awakening of Zen" is a delight for the novice and the scholar alike.
