About this product
- DescriptionKensho is the Zen experience of waking up to one's own true nature - of understanding one's self to be different from the Buddha nature that pervades all existence. Zen Master Hakuin considered the experience to be of central importance - in his autobiography he says: Anyone who would call himself a member of the Zen family must first achieve kensho - realization of the Buddha's way. If a person who has t achieved kensho says he is a follower of Zen he is an outrageous fraud. A swindler pure and simple. Hakuin's short text on how to recognize kensho, Four Ways of Kwing of an Awakened Person, is a little-kwn Zen classic. The four ways he describes - the way of kwing of the Great Perfect Mirror, the way of kwing equality, the way of kwing by differentiation, and the way of the perfection of action - are ultimately in themselves ways of Zen practice, rather than simply being methods for checking for enlightenment. Albert Low has provided careful, line-by-line commentary for the text that illuminates its profound wisdom, and makes it an inspiration for spiritual practice.
