One point that I have to make is how much more of an impact this book had on me after I watched Joseph Campbell's video series "The Power of Myth" . I read this book both before and after I watched the videos and realized how much more they meant to me afterwards and how great this book really is.
If you want to get even more out of this book, check out the Campbell videos, you won't be sorry that you did.
Never straying from the seriousness of Zen, this little gem really reveals the joy that lies underneath. A great way to get started; a great little reminder for those already underway.
Tsai Chih Chung is brilliant in his ability to encapsulate the meaning and experience of these zen tales. You'll put this book down different than when you started. More a piece. Calm.
Buddhist monk Tsai Chih Chung has made an incredible contribution to stacks of zen litterature with these witty cartoons. I've yet to find zen stories presented in an accessable and poignant manner as done here.
I highly reccomend it.
