5.0 out of 5 stars Best, bester, besterest., Nov. 30 2002

Ken Baker (Tiffin, Ohio United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Zen Master Raven: Sayings and Doings of a Wise Bird (Paperback)
This book is a delight. ... Finest value for my dollar of any purchase I can recall making. I am now on my fourth reading, and see no reason to stop. Aitken Roshi has given us a compendium of dozens of original American koans--or as the animals say, "turning points." Raven hears the story of Shakyamuni's realization when looking up to see the morning star from beneath the Bodhi tree. Raven somehow feels something is missing. What?

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique!, Nov. 23 2002

This review is from: Zen Master Raven: Sayings and Doings of a Wise Bird (Paperback)
I appreciate Robert Aitken much more after reading this unique little creation of his. And I think you will, too, if you have some familiarity of Zen practice. The book consists of connected succinct stories that refreshingly present key realizations in Zen Buddhism -- without the usual old Chinese or Japanese monks.
