in the American Grain: Discovering the Teachings at Home
by Kyogen Carlson. Many times in American culture, the word "Zen"
is used to bring up images of the exotic, the far-away, the mysterious,
the unattainable. In this book, Kyogen Sensei writes about finding everyday
Zen in an unemployment office, the coming of spring, a barking dog, the
music of Mozart, the dying of a beloved friend. Goes into greater depth
than Zen Roots.
