Place the word Tao Into your heart. Use no other words. The Tao is constantly moving, the path that all life and the whole universe takes.

Both the culturally curious and the maturing Buddhist will welcome Dinty W. Moore's "The Accidental Buddhist". Originally setting out to do some George Plimptonesque reporting -- meeting with the odd and the holy and coming back with the story of how Americans are turning to Buddhist meditation -- Moore never expected that what he found would change his life. After all, Moore prides himself on being a skeptic, "a commonsensical outsider...like the stage manager poking his head in around the set of Our Town" (San Jose Mercury News). In "The Accidental Buddhist", Moore shows us the geography of ... View more info

Price: $8.00

Seller ID: 9784770029553

This is a translation of an important classic on Zen swordfighting. Yagyu Munenori was so widely renowned that he was appointed official sword instructor to two Tokugawa shoguns. (The position was always coveted by Miyamoto Musashi, but he never succeeded in gaining the post). Yagyu's style is known as the Shinkage-ryu style, for centuries the official style of the Tokugawa dynasty. His spiritual mentor was Zen priest Takuan. Here, Yagyu's Buddhist spirituality is clearly reflected in his central idea of the "life-giving sword" - the notion of controlling an opponent by the spiritual readiness... View more info
