Book Excerpt: Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind

Shunryu Suzuki
The book, Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind is one of the most famous zen-related texts as it approaches a way of thinking that ultimately shuns intellectualism, and empowers us to lead a life of original thinking.

We are big fans of this way of thinking.
