Description

Wise, clear and searching, Opening the Hand of Thought brings together the writings of an iconoclastic Japanese Zen master. Kosho Uchiyama takes a more rational approach to transcendence, to the discovery of the unlimited depth of reality, and understands the self beyond our usual notions of who we are--the self thatwholeheartedly lives out the truth of life. He attempts to answer the essential question: how do we bring Zen practice and our everyday modern lives together into a fresh expression of our life force? His book is a challenge to the individual, an exploration of the relationship each of us has to ourself and the world, and a spiritual journey infused with the wise humor of a respected and revered teacher.
