Reseña del editor
"In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few."
So begins this most beloved of all American Zen books. Seldom has such a small handful of words provided a teaching as rich as has this famous opening line. In a single stroke, the simple sentence cuts through the pervasive tendency students have of getting so close to Zen as to completely miss what it's all about. An instant teaching on the first page. And that's just the beginning.
In the forty years since its original publication, Zen Mind, Beginners Mind has become one of the great modern spiritual classics, much beloved, much reread, and much recommended as the best first book to read on Zen. Suzuki Roshi presents the basicsfrom the details of posture and breathing in zazen to the perception of nondualityin a way that is not only remarkably clear, but that also resonates with the joy of insight from the first to the last page.

On first reading, I understood very little of what it was trying to convey. Sentences in English, easy enough to read, but conveying concepts that clearly went deeply beneath the words to a place that I didn’t comprehend and couldn’t feel.
I’ve since re-read it and now, continually re-read sections of it! Its instruction cannot really be conveyed via language alone. The concepts have to be absorbed in combination with meditation, intent and an openness to different ways of looking at life. Each sentence becomes a phrase to study and meditate on. Eventually, the meaning of the words start to appear as if birds in a wood when you are looking for them. Everything quiets down and then they appear to you, though they’ve always been there.
Over time, my understanding of the book has changed from it being a lecture, a ‘this is how you should do it’ instructional to a ‘look, this is how it can work’ observation - an understanding of how it is possible to live with straight forward and simple, profound joy.
It is one of my go-to resources for spiritual guidance and calm beauty.
When back in Boston, I got to work to save money to return to SF Zen Ctr to study with Roshi, living at a yoga center brownstone in Boston. In November 1971 I got word that Suzuki Roshi was dying of cancer and he passed in December. Shortly there after, Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche came to our yoga center to give some seminars, and the transition was for me, both appropriate and fortunate.
In my small framed photo collection of Tibetan meditation masters is one of Suzuki Roshi also. That slim book has been my companion and has revealed more and more truth as my meditation practice has deepened over the decades.
my conception of Meditation (and the 'spiritual path', as we call it) drastically shifted.
"Beginner's Mind" is arranged into chapters/vignettes of short, 3-page talks. Suzuki's wisdom is simple, clear, & effective.
His talks help clarify the proper mental attitude with which to practice zazen (sitting-meditation), and, by consequence, he clarifies the spiritual path in general.
