Reviews

"Abels writes about the Zen Ancestors with clarity and a depth of knowledge that comes from long practice and study. Her rich and succinct descriptions of the lives of the Zen ancestors will help many find their own way into the Zen path."--Andy Ferguson, author of Zen's Chinese Heritage "Janet Abels walks hand-in-hand with the ancient Chinese Zen Ancestors. She brings alive their struggles and triumphs on the road to awakening. Through Abels' excellent narratives and her own deep understanding, she has revealed the profound teachings of these great masters for present-day students of the Way."--Gerry Shishin Wick, author of The Book of Equanimity "Janet Abels has given us a strong presentation in spirited prose of the lives of the founding teachers of Zen Buddhism during China's Tang Dynasty. She clearly presents the personalities of these teachers, their place in history, and the individual's contribution to Zen practice."--Father Robert Kennedy, Roshi "Abels has an easy way of bringing us into deeper relationship with the hit parade of luminaries from Zen's Chinese founding. Telling their stories and putting them in historical context, she invites us again and again to see their lives as our lives, their stories as our stories. A book of inspiration and challenge for all of us who are interested in clarifying the great matter of being a human being."--David Rynick, author of This Truth Never Fails
